Past and present parents, students and friends!
Some of you may know me already as I have been working here in the St. Regis school system since 1991! Teaching Half Day Kindergarten brings me back to where I started then, as a half time Kindergarten and half time Title One teacher. It is such a thrill to now see some of the beautiful children of former students in my classrooms. After lunch you will find me in the library as this is my second joy.
I grew up in the beautiful mission valley and in 1976 I began my teaching adventure as a student at Montana State University (Go Cats!) I took time out in 1978 to marry my husband, Roger, and raise 3 wonderful boys, Kris, Scott, and Dan. (I am proud to say, they are all graduates of our fine school, have successful careers, and have blessed us with 4 beautiful grandchildren… so far.) Moving from Libby to Big Sandy opened doors to MSU-Northern and I returned to college after an 11 year break. (You CAN always go back to school!) I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a Reading endorsement, accepted this teaching position and the rest is history! Since arriving I have been able to complete my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction through the University of Idaho (Go Vandals) and my Library Media endorsement through the University of Montana (Go Griz!)
On a personal note, we enjoy the outdoors, have recently completed building our own log house, and love getting together with family and friends. Fishing, 4-wheeling, camping, golfing and traveling take up our summers and beyond. We are still searching for the ideal winter fun but teaching keeps me busy and I love this profession.
Here’s to another wonderful year at our beloved St. Regis School!
