This is my first year teaching at Lowell and I am so excited! This is my 16th year teaching in Missoula (from PreSchool to ELL Department to MOA). I have worked in both the private school sector and for the last six years with MCPS. I have a BS in Recreation Management and have taught Outdoor Leadership and Education for over 30 years. About 20 years ago, I decided I would like to teach indoors and went back to The University of Montana to take courses towards my teaching license and eventually received a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I LOVE the outdoors and spending time in and around water with my dog Jelly Bean.
