I was born and raised in Missoula, Montana.
As a child, I attended Rattlesnake School from 3rd grade through 8th grade. My current classroom is where I used to attend my 8th grade science class. How about that? What a treat to return as an elementary school teacher to give back to the community that raised me.
After grade school, I attended Hellgate High School and then the University of Montana. From UM I received a BA in Elementary Education and then achieved my master's degree in Technology for Education from Lesley College.
My interests include spending time with family, hiking with my dogs, vacationing, cheering on Griz sports, reading, and drinking coffee.
Mr. Jarvis and I are proud parents of two wonderful children. Our son just graduated from UM with a degree in Business Management. He is working in Missoula as a financial advisor. Our daughter is currently in her second year of Physical Therapy School at UM. Go Griz!
