Education Director Diane Kemble oversees the development and implementation of a variety of educational programs and events for students and the general public, which support the educational goals of the Coolidge Foundation. As a retired elementary school teacher, Diane enjoys working with teachers of all grades to integrate Vermont and United States History. The beautifully preserved village of Plymouth Notch and the story of Calvin Coolidge’s path to the Presidency provide for rich learning experiences that use observation, inquiry and discussion to learn about life in the past and how it relates to the present. Diane believes that integrating the arts with content areas make the most sense of how children learn, express themselves, and share what they know. She has many years of experience making handmade books with students and is available to do workshops and special projects.
In addition to organizing visits to the Coolidge Site, Diane has also developed Outreach Programs and is available to come to schools and other meeting places.
Diane Kemble has a Masters in Education from Antioch New England and a BS from Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. Past professional activities include many years in leadership positions with the Vermont Alliance for Arts Education.
