Teacher Info


     Maureen Ojala

     My name is Maureen Ojala and I am delighted to be on the Special Education team at Hellgate High School. 

    I am originally from Paisley, Scotland and have been in the U.S. for 18 years.  I went to Law School in Scotland at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, so teaching is a second career for me. I used to volunteer my time with children with disabilities, so becoming a teacher was really a natural progression.  I obtained my teaching certification and M.A. in Special Education from Point Loma Nazarene University in California where I lived and worked for five years. Since coming back to Montana I have taught at Corvallis High School in the Bitterroot, and at Hawthorne Elementary here in Missoula. 

    I am married to Eric who is an alumni of Hellgate, and who also teaches Science here. I have a daughter Rori who will be attending this Fall as a Freshman.

    In my spare time I enjoy travelling, and hiking and camping here in the great state of Montana.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me. I am here to help, and partner with you to make a plan for your student during, and after High School.
