Helping students succeed has been a passion of mine for a long time.  I have been a part of this wonderful community of teachers at Prospect Mountain High School for four years now and couldn’t be happier.  Before coming to Prospect I worked as a paraprofessional for five years in the Pembroke School District and was a special education teacher for three years at Belmont High School.  In both places I worked mostly with students with behavioral or emotional disorders. During my 11 years working in education I have spent nine of them coaching baseball, basketball, soccer and lacrosse.  I have coached at all levels from middle school through varsity.  Prior to my career in education I received my undergraduate degree from Temple University in Psychology and my master’s degree from Rivier University in Special Education with a concentration in emotional and behavioral disorders as well as positive behavior intervention and support.  In my free time, when I get it, I enjoy spending time outside, playing or watching sports and spending time with my wife and dog.

This is my 8th year here. I couldn't be happier. I'm exceedingly fortunate and grateful for my family and friends.

Andrea Barnes

I have been at Prospect Mountain for 9 years. I currently work in the Special Education Department in the life skills room. Prior to Prospect, I was employed at Alton Central School for 3 years, and Pittsfield Middle High School for 4 years. I graduated from ACS in 1994 and find it ironic that I am now working under the same roof as teachers that taught me,  This past summer of 2021 I obtained my LNA license which helps me in the position I hold here at Prospect working with students with higher physical needs.  When I'm not at work I enjoy riding my motorcycle, spending time with my friends and family, especially my 17 year old daughter, Jaylyn, who also attends school here.

Alexandra Berry

My name is Alexandra Berry. I am in my fourth year as a paraprofessional at PMHS! I'm a 2018 Prospect Mountain graduate. I loved my time at Prospect, and I didn't want to leave; I'm so lucky and thankful to be back. This school has always felt more like a second home than a school to me. Being back has presented me with the opportunity to do things and experience things I never got to do while I was in school as a student. I've enjoyed each challenge presented to me, and I'm proud to say I've overcome each hurdle. I love assisting with the Unified sports teams through the year. Along with working as a paraprofessional, I mentor the FRC Big Bad Bob 319 robotics team. I love being able to give back to the team that I gained so much from when I was a member during my Junior and Senior years of school.

Bonnie Dodge

I am privileged to be a part of an amazing group of Para Educators. I am grateful to each and every student I am privileged to work with. While I do my best to assist them, they in fact, teach me so much about life. This is my fourth year here at PMHS. Prior to that, I was employed as a Life Skills Coach for several years. While raising my daughters I worked as a full-time Homesteader and LOVED it. But the most important, meaningful job of my lifetime was being a mom.   

James Hill

My name is James Hill.  I am certified as a teacher in Mathematics.  I just started at PMHS as a paraprofessional this year.  I love what I do but enjoy my weekends more.  In the summer, you're likely to find me singing and kayaking (Yes, at the same time) on Milton Three Ponds.  I have been singing there, in my kayak or rowboat, for over 15 years.  If I'm not singing in my kayak then I may be enjoying any other activity at the lake.  I love sharing holiday meals with my family.  I'm looking forward to a fantastic year.

I have been a wife of 20+ years. Together we have 2 sons, who have graduated from PMHS, and a daughter, who is currently a senior.
