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.
