Mrs. Mariah Babbel

3rd Grade Teacher | SPED & Assessment Coordinator


Mrs. Babbel holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s Degree in Education. She taught 3rd grade in Bennington Public School for eight years before coming to Legacy in 2020.

I love being part of the Legacy staff for several reasons. The first reason I decided to join Legacy is the school’s belief that students should learn at their pace in a way that works for them. I also love to make the school experience fun and exciting while holding students to high and rigorous academic standards. I can do all this at Legacy and can’t wait to create many more magical moments for students!
