Ms. Briner


My name is Melissa Briner and I will be teaching 7th Grade Math, Health and PE.  I am thrilled to spend my second year as a teacher here at CS Porter.  I recently completed my K-8 Certification as well as a Masters Degree in Curriculum & Instruction at The University of Montana.  Prior to this I earned a B.A. in Theatre from St. Michael's College in Burlington, Vermont.  

I was born and raised in Massachusetts and found my way to Missoula in 2008 when I began touring with Missoula Children's Theatre.  To this day I am an active part of the MCT family and you may even spot me on stage every now and then! 

During this school year I look forward to growing along with the 7th grade students.  My aim is to have a fun, creative and collaborative classroom environment where the students feel safe, respected, loved and confident enough to take chances.  

Please feel free to reach out to me via e-mail or phone with any questions or concerns regarding your student! I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
