728-2400 X6629Professional Experience/BackgroundThis is my 12th year teaching. I was hired for my first teaching position by Hellgate High School in 2011. After graduating high school from Flathead High School in 2001, I attended Pacific Lutheran University where I attained my Bachelor of Arts in History. After tutoring inner city youth in Tacoma, WA I realized I was being called to be an educator. So I pursued and attained my Master of Arts in Education, Curriculum & Instruction at the University of Montana in 2010. GO GRIZ! After one year of substitute teaching I was hired to teach here at Hellgate.Personal LifeI am married and have two beautiful children, 8 and 11 years old. We love to be on the go, playing. Summers are filled with lake time and family time. When fall hits you can find me either in the classroom, out supporting Hellgate soccer or at my kids activities. Winter is our family's love. Snowshoeing, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, snowball fights, sledding, anything with snow and we are in! Good music always accompanies our adventures from Brandi Carlile to some good old rap.
