    "In a world where you can be anything... Be KIND! "

     ***2J 2019 - 2020 School Supply List can be seen below!*** 
    Hello!  I am so excited to be your child's 2nd grade teacher!  This is my 8th year teaching at Russell School, and my 6th year in 2nd grade.  I spent two years teaching 5th graders and have loved my last four years with 2nd graders. I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Montana with a Library Media Endorsement in the Spring of 2012. I earned my Master's Degree in K-6 Reading and Literacy in August of 2016. 
    I grew up in Dillon, MT to a teacher mother and a civil engineer father.  I have an older brother, Brian, who is a dispatcher for the Beaverhead County Sheriff's Department and a younger sister, Taryn, who is a Registered Nurse at the Hospital in Dillon.  I love sports, reading, traveling, and spending time with my family.  I love the New York Yankees, Boston Celtics, and Denver Broncos. My boyfriend Kris and I have two Miniature Australian Shepherds named Roma Bella and Milo Grey. They are a lot of fun and keeps us busy!   
    To assist in making this a positive experience for your child,  please contact me with any questions and/or concerns.  My number at school is (406) 728-2400 ext. 4818 or you can email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. A monthly newsletter will be sent home to keep you informed of happenings in our classroom.  Thank you for sharing your child with me!
