I graduated from the University of Montana with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in 1988.  I went on to get my minor in Special Education in 1989.  I have a Master's Degree with an emphasis in Reading.  I am a trained Reading Recovery Teacher. This year begins 35 years of teaching.  I taught Title One for 9 years, 2 years at DeSmet School and 7 years at Emma Dickinson Elementary school. This is my 26th year of teaching Kindergarten here at Franklin School.   In my spare time I enjoy reading, watching movies and sports, and camping. I am married to my husband, Allen, who also works for Missoula County Public Schools.
