Bio

berriesHi friends, my name is Cliff Des Marais and I am a professional educator and whole-communities advocate here in Vermont. I live in Bondville with my wife, our son, our lovable mutt, Hemingway and our mischievous cat, Willy. I attended the University of Vermont’s College of Education and Social Services where I received a B.S. in Secondary Education and focus in Broadfield History. I earned my Master of Education at  Plymouth State University where I studied Curriculum Design and Instruction through the lens of Teaching for Whole Communities.

When I am not at Bellows Falls Middle School or volunteering for youth organizations such as Destination Imagination, you can find me enjoying the beautiful natural scenery of our great state. If you have questions regarding any of the information or links on this blog, feel free to send me an e-mail, I’ll respond in as timely a manner as life currently permits!
