Chemistry I and Earth Science
My name is Lisa Ratz and I am teaching Chemistry and Earth Science for the fourth year in a row after taking time off to raise my girls. I am thrilled to be back at Hellgate in the same classroom that I taught in for five years from 1999 - 2004. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Montana Tech and a Master's in Chemistry from the University of Montana. While I was earning my Master's degree, I received my teaching certification from the U of M as well.
I also have my broad science endorsement.
My husband, a mechanical engineer and I met at Montana Tech and have been married for 26 years. I am the proud mom of two girls, Emily, 18 a Freshman at Montana Tech who is planning to study Nursing and Sarah, 14, a 9th grader at Hellgate.
I was born and raised in Butte and my husband was born and raised in Whitefish - so, Missoula has been a great place for us to settle and make it our home.
I am so excited to be back teaching chemistry and earth science again and I am looking forward to the opportunity to get to know all of my students this year.
