     ***2J 2020 - 2021 School Supply List can be seen below!*** 
    Hello!  I am so excited to be your child's 2nd grade teacher!  This is my 9th year teaching at Russell School, and my 7th year in 2nd grade.  I spent two years teaching 5th graders and have loved my last six years with 2nd graders. I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Montana with a Library Media Endorsement in the Spring of 2012. I earned my Master's Degree in K-6 Reading and Literacy in August of 2016. 
    I grew up in Dillon, MT to a teacher mother and a civil engineer father.  I have an older brother, Brian, who is a dispatcher for the Beaverhead County Sheriff's Department and a younger sister, Taryn, who is a Registered Nurse at the Hospital in Dillon.  I love sports, reading, traveling, and spending time with my family.  I love the New York Yankees, Boston Celtics, and Denver Broncos. My boyfriend Kris and I have two Miniature Australian Shepherds named Roma Bella and Milo Grey. We love to take them to Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge to go for walks along the river.
    To assist in making this a positive experience for your child,  please contact me with any questions and/or concerns.  My number at school is (406) 728-2400 ext. 4818 or you can email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. A monthly newsletter will be sent home to keep you informed of happenings in our classroom.  Thank you for sharing your child with me!
