About the Teacher

    Mrs. McHugh 
    After graduating from the University of Montana in 1990, I spent my first six years  teaching in Everett, WA and Arlee, MT.  I began teaching at Chief Charlo in 1996!  This is my 34th year as a classroom teacher.  My experience includes teaching first through fifth grades. 
    My husband, Pat, and I are native Montanans. Pat is the business director for MCPS. We feel fortunate to have raised our sons, Matt and Ryan, in Missoula near both of our extended families.  We spend lots of time hiking, biking, skiing, and gathering at our family cabin at Georgetown Lake. We also love to travel to see our boys, who are now married.  Matt and his wife, Kate,  live in Kalispell.  Ryan and his wife, Isabella, live in Salt Lake City. 
    I am looking forward to our year together!  If you need to reach me before school begins or during the school year, my number is 728-2400 (ext 4953), and my email is lmchugh@mcpsmt.org.
