2021 Keynote Address

Tim Emery spent 35 dedicated years in Vermont’s Public Education system before retiring in July of 2018. He held positions as a teacher, coach, and administrator in both Essex and Colchester. Mr. Emery was recognized as Teacher of the Year in the Essex Junction School District and was Vice President of the Essex Junction Teacher’s Association. In his many roles, Mr. Emery had a passion for working with students, teachers, parents, and the community. His leadership focused on student relationships and management, teacher supervision and evaluation, department oversight, and school safety. In his retirement, Mr. Emery is sharing his gift of school leadership through educational consulting with new administrators and work with schools and police departments concerning school safety. His keynote at this year’s conference will be a light-hearted look at the importance of the work of school facilities personnel through dynamic and humorous storytelling.
