    A little about me...
    After 14 years working in central and building administration (including six years as an Assistant Principal at Big Sky), I returned to the classroom in 2020. It is a pleasure getting back to working directly with students on developing their skills as readers, writers, and thinkers.
    Before coming to Big  Sky High School, I was the Assistant Principal at Meadow Hill Middle School for two years. Prior to coming to Meadow Hill, I worked in central administration for six years as a Teacher on Special Assignment, Instructional Technology Coordinator, and the Directory of Creativity, Innovation and Technology.
    Before moving into central administration, I was an English teacher at the Willard Alternative High School Program for six years.
    I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from St. Cloud State University and am licensed to teach English and biology. I earned my Master's Degree in Educational Technology from Lesley University and my Educational Leadership endorsement from the University of Montana.
    In my spare time, I like to hike and mountain bike in the summer and fence in the winter, which I have done competitively for over thirty years.
