• My name is Kate Farnes.  I have been with MCPS for 8 years.  I taught 1st and 3rd grade at Hawethorne, before taking time to spend at home with my 2 boys.  I am excited to join the Paxson Family as the Dual Language Coach.  

    I grew up in Butte, graduated from Butte Central Catholic High School and moved to Missoula to continue my education.  I have BA degree in Elementary Ed and a MA degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a STEM emphasis. I married the love of my life and Missoula native, Robby, in July 2012 and we have two boys, Grady and Griffin. We love to spend time as family at Canyon Ferry Lake and love to be outdoors.
