Degrees and Certifications:
I am super excited to be at Lowell Elementary School this year teaching Title 1. This is a new teaching adventure for me as I have taught k-12 Art and Special Education for many years within MCPS. I have a fine Art degree from the Univeristy of Montana with k-12 Art Education and p-12 Special education teaching endorsements. I also have a Master's Degree in Education.
When I was a youngster, school was a struggle. I had the desire to learn but much of school was challenging. I was fortunate to have dedicated parents and passionate teachers who shared with me alternate ways to see and experience the world. I want all my students to feel valued, to grow in confidence, to gain skills to thrive - grow - learn - and have: impactfull, meaningful, productive, joyful lives.
When I am not at school you can find me chasing after my kidlets and our furry dog, playing outside with my family or getting into some messy project.
My schedule is often changing. You can contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 406.728.2400 ext 4439.
