Mr. Petersen in front of the Blodgett Canyon Overlook in Hamilton.


  • Greetings! I'm Isak Petersen and I am so excited to be teaching at Chief Charlo school. I grew up in Polson and attended MSU where I earned a degree in History with a minor in Native American Studies and Anthropology. More recently, I completed a master's degree in Elementary Education. This will be my first year of teaching, but many students may recognize me; I've been a paraeducator at Chief Charlo for the last two years. It's going to be a great year!
