Mrs. Laurel Kress

Hello! As a new second grade teacher here, I can say I feel lucky to be in Missoula! Although I am new here, I am not new to teaching; I taught fourth grade in Great Falls for five years. I am originally from just north of there, growing up on a farm and ranch. I attended MSU Bozeman, graduating with a B.S. in Agricultural Education Relations, a B.S. in Elementary Education, and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. My husband and I have two wire-haired pointing griffons and enjoy going out hunting with them. 

I am absolutely thrilled to work with your students; every day is a fun adventure! I strive to help each student learn to appreciate, and hopefully even love, both math and reading. I have an open-door policy; you are welcome to come to class any day (following MCPS volunteer guidelines)! Please reach out with any questions or comments. I look forward to meeting you!
