    Chemistry and Earth Science 




    MY name is Lisa Ratz and I am back teaching Chemistry after  15 years.  In addition, I am teaching two sections of Earth Science for the first time.  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 23 years.  I am the proud mom of two girls, Emily, 15 a sophomore at Hellgate and Sarah, 11, a 6th 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 excited to be back teaching and I am looking forward to the opportunity to get to know all of my students.

    Go Knights!!
