Mr. Ty Solberg
Hello! My name is Ty Solberg and I am the Principal at C.S. Porter.
I grew up in Lewistown, MT, a small town in the center of the state. I then graduated from UM as an elementary education major and special education minor. Upon graduation in 2004, I started teaching at CS Porter, and here I am 19 years later, still here! I earned a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership (Administration) in the summer of 2011 and licensure in 2014. I taught nine years of 8th grade, and during the 2014-2015 school year (my 2nd in the 7th grade) I moved into the office to substitute as vice principal, and later became the Interim Vice Principal until being selected as the Vice Principal in the spring of 2015. I LOVE CS PORTER...the staff, students, and parents. There is no place I'd rather work.
I also got married in 2010, and my wife and I have two children, Mira, born in July of 2012, and Jett, born in May of 2015. Mira is lots of fun, and she definitely keeps her mom and dad on their toes. It's been great watching Jett grow, seeing his sister adore him, and experiencing how much he adds to our lives.
I also coached 8 years of freshmen, JV, and varsity boys basketball, and four years as the head boys and girls golf coach at Big Sky High School.
If I have any spare time, I love golf, exercise, play basketball, and travel with my wife and two kids.
Please don’t hesitate to call or email me with any questions, comments, or concerns. I look forward to another great year at CS Porter.
