Born and raised in Missoula, I first knew CS Porter as a middle school student in the 1980s.
After graduating from Big Sky High School and the University of Montana, I was lucky enough to teach English in Kumamoto, Japan for three years. Although living and traveling abroad was wonderful, returning home to Missoula was well-timed in 2000.
Since then I have been happily teaching and learning at CS Porter Middle School.
When not at school, I can be found spending time with my family (usually outside), running with our dog, traveling, cooking, knitting, writing, and reading books of all kinds!
