Growing up in Suffield, Conn., Mallorie attended public school until she was given an opportunity to attend a private boarding school for all four years of high school. Those experiences started her love for education. Since she had a close relationship with her teachers, she knew she wanted to do the same thing for students in the future.
As an educator, Mallorie believes that when students are given the right tools for success, the possibilities are endless. To her, each student is a unique individual who needs a stimulating, caring, challenging, and enriching educational environment in order to meet their fullest potential. To achieve this, she strives to provide a safe learning environment that encourages risk-taking and invites the sharing of ideas all while integrating various ways to assess ability, collaborate with peers, and promote respect for all.
As a student at Western New England University, Mallorie was a four-year member of the women’s soccer team. Following her college career, Mallorie moved to Canaan, N.H., to work at the Cardigan Mountain School. At Cardigan, Mallorie was involved in all facets of school life, including teaching, dorm parenting, coaching soccer and tennis, and advising.
Mallorie was drawn to Brimmer because of the welcoming community and strong bonds between the faculty, staff, students, and families. Her students amaze her every day and their excitement for learning inspires her to provide the tools they need to succeed. Moreover, those firsthand experiences in the classroom are easily translated into conversations with prospective families in admissions.
Mallorie is a Designated School Official for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and a certified expert in DHS’s Student and Exchange Visitor Information System. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling and visiting new places around the world. Mallorie loves to ski in the winter and can often be found hiking various New Hampshire mountains on the weekends, especially with her four-year-old boxer named Stanley.
