My name is Petrea Torma, and I am a 4th grade teacher at Paxson Elementary School. I graduated from the University of Montana in 2005 with my degree in Elementary Education. Immediately after graduating from college, I began working with The Missoula Children's Theatre as a Tour Actor/Director. With MCT I traveled all over the United States (including Hawaii and Guam!), Canada, South Korea, and Japan. I began working at C.S. Porter in the fall of 2007 as an 8th grade English Language Arts and Health Enhancment teacher. I taught 8th grade for 5 years. In 2012, I moved to 6th grade and taught this level for six years. In the spring of 2016 I earned my masters degree in Elementary Education: Curriculum and Instruction from The University of Montana. I began teaching 4th grade at Paxson Elementary school in the fall of 2018.
Aside from teaching, I love to sing, act, play guitar, play volleyball, play games and can always be found with at least 4 books on my bedstand. I love suggestions of new games and books!
