Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to be in Manhattan!
I grew up mainly in Choteau, MT and graduated with my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from MSU, Bozeman. Shortly after graduation I was hired to teach kindergarten in Belgrade and taught there for thirteen years. During that time, I completed my Master of Science Degree in Elementary Reading and Math from Walden University and coached 7th grade volleyball.
We moved to Manhattan in April so that our son could grow up in a smaller community. We instantly fell in love with the town, people and way of life. I was lucky enough to get hired as a 1st grade teacher this spring!! My husband, Phil, continues to work in Belgrade and my son, Dawson, will be a 4th grader here. I am excited to have graduated to 1st grade and to be part of an amazing school district! I love working with students and cannot wait to get to know your child and his/her family.
