Mrs. Virginia Yandell
I am Virginia Yandell and I teach second grade at Essex Elementary School. This is my 16th year teaching and my 9th year at Essex Elementary School. Prior to teaching at EES I worked in St. Albans, Vermont teaching both special education and 2nd grade. I live in Essex, Vermont with my family which includes my husband Chris and my three school aged children Addie, Nolan, and Lila. Our australian shepherd, Dash, and our hamster, Sniffles, round out the family. Growing up, my mom was a 2nd grade teacher and it only seemed natural that I follow in her foot steps. I thoroughly enjoy coming to work each day and especially love working and living in the same community.
