Hi, I'm Sam and the Flagship Coordinator at Hellgate High School!
My main goal is to provide excellent after-school programming at Hellgate as well as provide students a safe and fun place to be themselves. If you have any questions about programming or are interested in volunteering at Hellgate, feel free to contact me. Students are welcome to drop by my room, room 170 (across the office and vending machines on the first floor). Always feel free to contact me at


My interests: Frissbee golf, basketball (Go Portland Trail Blazers!), hiking, eating at new restaurants, exploring Missoula, Magic: The Gathering, StarWars, Football (Go Cleveland Browns!), running, traveling with friends, History, podcasts, history podcasts, etc.


A little about me: I am originally from Portland, OR. I came to Missoula to get my undergraduate degree in History, Secondary Education, and a minor in Spanish. My last semester of undergraduate, I was lucky enough to be able to be a student teacher at Hellgate High School. My passion for history/teaching was at an all-time high and I knew I needed to return to Hellgate somehow. During college, I was able to be a volunteer for Flagship and I fell in love with the program, its values, its overall message, and the joy and friendships it brought students. 


Any time my door is open, please come on in! I am always up to meet new students, talk about fun and interesting things, and create a safe space for students where they feel listened to and respected. Come drop by and say hi, even if you are not involved with Flagship. There are usually snacks in the room :)
