A Discussion on Middle School Social Issues and Dynamics, 2/16

Please join us at the school for an evening with Tiffany Bluemle to discuss social issues and dynamics at the Middle School level.

When: Monday, Feb 16 from 7-8:30
Who: 7th and 8th grade parents

Tiffany will speak to the fact that school communities commonly experience negative social behavior in the Middle School years, particularly 8th grade.  She will help parents develop understanding about how these behaviors manifest and the underlying dynamics that give rise to them.  She will host an informal discussion aimed at helping parents gain literacy around these issues as well as tools for talking about them with their children and others.

For 17 years, Tiffany Bluemle served as executive director of Vermont Works for Women, an organization that is recognized nationally for innovative and effective programs. Prior to that, she served as Director of Development for The New York City Outward Bound Center and for six years was a middle and high school history teacher and administrator in Manhattan.  Tiffany received a Masters in Public Administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, and her B.A. from Princeton University where she served as a member of its Board of Trustees. One of two sons, Will, is enrolled as a sophomore at Vermont Commons.
