    Chemistry I 




    My name is Lisa Ratz and I am back teaching Chemistry and Earth Science for a third year after taking time to raise my girls.   I am thrilled to be back at Hellgate in the 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 24 years.  I am the proud mom of two girls, Emily, 17 a Senior at Hellgate and Sarah, 13, an 8th grader at Washington Middle School.

    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. 

    Go Knights!!
