Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Samantha Pierce and I teach fourth grade at Rattlesnake School. I have taught everything from Kindergarten through 4th grade in my 25+ years of teaching children.
I come from a long line of teachers and have an undergraduate degree from MSU but have no fear, I received my masters degree from the U of M. Go, Grizzlies! Need I say more?!
I began my teaching career in Washington but returned to Missoula after a few years, as the Garden City truly is home. In my years as a teacher, I have had the opportunity to be involved in many exciting educational practices such as looping and multi-age. I believe that building relationships with my students and their families comes first and foremost. I feel that once trust and respect have developed, students can begin to take risks and meaningful learning can begin.
In my spare time, I live for traveling, spending time with my wonderful son, reading a great book, and exploring all of the scenic places Montana has to offer!
I truly look forward to a wonderful year with everyone!
