Ms. Vicky Houston

Welcome to Brookside Elementary School!  I am so excited to be part of the Brookside Family!  I was born and raised in Milford and have had the privilege of raising my own family in this wonderful community.  

Each morning, I look forward to greeting our students, knowing that they have a wonderful day of learning, socialization, and growth ahead of them. Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders and it is exciting and rewarding to see maturation and success in each individual.  Elementary school is the foundation of how to be the best you can be.  I frequently revisit the poem, “All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten” by Robert Fulghum. Our students learn so much on a daily basis the moment they start Kindergarten!  It is truly amazing!

A little about me:  I earned my Undergraduate Degree from Framingham State College in Early Childhood Education and my Master’s Degree is in Special Education from Providence College. I have worked in a variety of roles at MPS for over 25 years. 
Here are the core values that inspire me:

  • We all need to take care of one another.
  • Inclusion and a sense of belonging is essential to our community.
  • Our differences need to be celebrated and with this, we capitalize on strengths.
  • Everyone has room for growth.
    Outside of school, I love spending time with my family and my dogs, and I enjoy watching the adventures of my two daughters, Sami and Tesha, who are also aspiring educators! 

Please reach out anytime as communication and collaboration is key to your student’s success!
