All About Mr. Lane I'm so excited to begin my fourteenth year teaching in Bennington, Vermont. I began as a fourth and fifth grade teacher at Catamount Elementary and I have many great Catamount memories. I transferred to Monument Elementary for the 2008-2009 school year, which was also my first year teaching second grade. Since then, I've been Monument's second grade teacher (though I did teach one year with a combination second and third grade class).
I was born and raised in Pittstown, New York (just over the state line) and I went to Tamarac High School in Brunswick. In 2000 I finished my undergraduate work at SUNY Albany after I started at SUNY Oswego. I finished my graduate degree at Albany's College of St. Rose in 2002. I now live in Eagle Mills, New York (near Troy, NY) with my wife Meredith Lee-Clark. We were married in the fall of 2015 after we bought our (old) home in the spring of 2014. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy playing (mostly acoustic) music, seeing concerts and collecting vinyl records. I also love spending time outside in all of the beautiful seasons Vermont and New York present each year.
