Who Are We?

Jessica Kramer-


I graduated from Saint Michael’s College with a B.S. in Biology and a concentration in Secondary Education. This is my sixth year teaching and my fifth at Williston Central School.  I recently bought a house and moved to Essex Junction with my husband Jaimie, my beagle Henry, and my boy cat Daisy.  This year I look forward to getting my groove back with only 7th and 8th graders, practicing the science teaching I have been studying in grad school at UVM, and getting used to being Mrs. Kramer!!  When not at school I spend my time reading, pretending to cook, hiking, and diving when the weather is good!

Deb Taylor-


I graduated from the University of Maine with a BS in Secondary Education. I earned an MA in Curriculum & Instruction from Chapman University while living/teaching in sunny California. Once upon a time I traveled extensively and lived abroad; then I had children (now juniors in high school). In my spare time I can be found walking my Labradors (Odin and Loki), on the fairways, digging in the dirt, enjoying seasonal sports, reading a good book, or surrounded by the people who make me happy. I hold certification in middle level social studies (5-9 and 7-12) and language arts (5-9) and am nationally board certified in social studies. I teach social studies for grades 7/8.

Many years ago, I earned a B.A. in English from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Education from the University of Vermont. For the past 22 years I've been teaching middle school and have been at WCS since 2000. In addition to teaching, I serve on the Middle/High School Advisory Board at Champlain College and worked as an educational consultant to Great Source Publishing. In my precious free time you can find me paddling in a dragon boat, carving turns on my snowboard, and reading a good book. I live in Williston with my fiancee, my daughter and our three aging dogs.
