Hello! I’m Elliot. I grew up in Wolcott (proud Wolcott Elementary graduate!) and, after some time in other places, moved back with my family 6 years ago. My goal on the School Board is to ensure there is a strong connection between the community and the school, and that everyone in Wolcott believes, like I do, that we are providing the best opportunities and education for our students. When I was in 6th grade I jumped off a swing on the playground and broke my arm! I did end up with a pretty rad glow-in-the-dark cast so it all worked out in the end.

I grew up in Wolcott and attended Wolcott Elementary, Craftsbury Academy, and UVM. I lived in Colorado until moving back home in 2008. My work and life experience combines small town living with a global perspective - which I bring to my work with the school board. As I work with companies who are constantly pushing their technologic and economic growth, it gives me a good perspective on what skills our children need to develop for success in that context - and it gives me perspective on how wonderful and valuable it is to be part of a small town community, and to live in a rural setting.

Hello, I’m Tim. I was born in Berlin, raised in Waterbury Center, and moved to Hyde Park in the 6th grade.  I’ve lived in Wolcott for two years now. I work as a Senior Budget Analyst for the State of Vermont and believe I bring fiscal/policy/process analysis skills to the school board, as well my experiences working with different student populations in several different schools. In high school, as part of Driver’s Ed,  I was rear-ended by a dump truck while driving the school’s car!

Hi, I'm Laura. My son is in the first grade at WES and is loving it! I've lived in Wolcott for nine years. We are so fortunate to have such a great small school where kiddos are treated as part of a family. I want to ensure that this tradition continues, along with continually improving academic and social/emotional achievements. When I was eight, I was in a stall in the bathroom of my school, and someone needed toilet paper. I threw a roll over the door to her, but it flew out into the hallway. This somehow caused a ruckus there, and I was suspended for a day!

Hello, everyone! I grew up in Central Vermont and have lived in Northern Vermont for the past 20 years. I have a Vermont educator's license and a master's degree in education. I currently work with my husband, Luke Hardt, to operate our consulting forestry business. We have two children, Alder and Willow (can you tell we like wetland ecosystems?). My goal as a school board member is to help ensure that faculty have the resources needed to provide high quality educational experiences for all children.
