Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and raised in Montana. I grew up in Missoula and graduated from the University of Montana in 2005 with a degree in Elementary Education and minor in Special Education. After college I headed for a place where I didn’t need to own a snow shovel or an ice scraper (because you can’t shovel sunshine) and I ended up in the sunny, hot, and beautiful desert of Phoenix, Arizona! I spent eight wonderful years teaching in Phoenix, six years at the fourth grade and two years at the second grade level. In 2013 I moved up to Bozeman and started teaching at Manhattan Elementary. I graduated from University of San Diego and earned a master’s degree in literacy and digital learning.
