Mrs. Elyse Hege


I am excited to continue my teaching at Chief Charlo. I was born in Missoula, raised in the Flathead and moved back to Missoula just a few years ago. Prior to moving back to Missoula, I went to Biola University in California for Elementary Education, traveled to Indonesia, Australia, Papua New Guinea and many more countries. As it's not a surprise, I love traveling but Montana has always been my true home. What I love most about this area is the endless amount of opportunies to enjoy the outdoors, from hiking and fishing to a walk along the river- I was made for Montana. Another one of my loves is my family, I have 4 brothers, 5 sisters and 29 nieces/nephews(and counting!).  I am positive that coming from such a big family is what developed in me the desire to teach and to invest into the next generation. There is no where I would rather be doing that than here at Chief Charlo School!
