Welcome to Canaan Schools

Canaan Schools Principal Chuck PattersonIt is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Canaan Schools, a rich Prek-12 community in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such enthusiastic students, dedicated teachers, and a supportive school community.

This is my eleventh year in the field of education, and I have worked with students of all ages over the past decade. I have been a high school science teacher, a teacher leader/instructional coach, and I spent two years as an assistant principal in a Prek-8 school before coming to Canaan Schools.

I grew up in northern New Hampshire, so I am thrilled that I get to work in the region where I was raised. I look forward to working with all of our families as a partner in education, to ensure your child’s success.

I believe that what is best for students should drive all school-related decisions. And I believe there is always an opportunity to learn new things, for all of us. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.
