Katy Chabot, MS ’04

Katy Chabot, MS ’04, a high school science teacher at Montpelier High School in Montpelier, Vermont, was named an Outstanding Teacher by the University of Vermont’s College of Education and Social Services and Vermont Supervisory Unions and School Districts in October 2013. All Outstanding Teachers exemplify one or more of the five standards for Vermont educators — learning, professional knowledge, advocacy, colleagueship, and accountability.

“Powerful teachers teeter on a difficult balance. Can she challenge students while maintaining compassion and understanding? Can she engage students in content but dedicate herself to the teaching of lifelong skill? Can she see the individual while thinking about all children? In one year of service to the students of Montpelier High School, Katy Chabot has distinguished herself as just such a teacher,” wrote Montpelier High School principal Adam Bunting in his nomination for this award. “To observe one of Katy’s biology classes is to see lessons that inspire engagement and curiosity. Her students experience science while enjoying a classroom community that is playful, positive and focused. We thank Katy for all of her efforts,”

Katy graduated from the Science Teacher Certification concentration in the Department of Environmental Studies
