Hello there, I’m Ms. Chant! I grew up in the Mount Washington Valley in New Hampshire and made my way to Boston after school. At Colby College, I independently majored in Educational Studies and minored in music. While working at a school in Boston for English Language Learners I studied for my Masters in Elementary Education at Lesley, and I’ve spent the last three wonderful years teaching second grade in Newton. I am interested in teaching for social justice and integrating the arts through project-based learning. Outside of school, I love to read, play piano, ski, and spend time by the water. I am very excited to continue teaching second graders in Brookline!

Hi, I am Ms. Haskett!  I grew up in Northern New Hampshire and graduated from the University of New Hampshire in 2009 with a degree in Family Studies.  I spent almost 5 years working for a non-profit organization before entering the teaching world and finding my true passion!  I received my Master of Education from Lesley University in 2015 and this is my 3rd year teaching at Devotion!  Before Devotion, I worked in another Brookline Public School and I am so excited to be part of such a passionate community of teachers, students and families. When I am not teaching, you will find me at Fenway Park watching my beloved Red Sox and playing with my adorable french bulldog, Bradley.

Hello, I'm Mrs. Poulin! I grew up in New Bedford, MA by the ocean and have a great love of being at the beach and on the water! I graduated from Boston University with a degree in Elementary Education. I earned my Master's degree at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education where I studied social and emotional learning in classroom contexts. I taught first grade for 5 wonderful years in Chelsea, MA. I am interested in innovative and culturally-relevant curriculum development to engage students' interests. While in Chelsea I worked with a team from Boston University and PBS Kids to co-author and present new curriculums at national conferences. I look forward to taking all I have learned in my experiences to create a wonderful learning experience in Brookline! When I am not teaching, I enjoy sea kayaking and taking walks around the local reservoirs and the arboretum with my husband!
