  • Welcome 6th Graders and family!

    This is my first year teaching at Hellgate Elementary, although most of you may remember me as a substitute teacher last year. Since we're both new to this building, we will be learning and growing together this school year -- and I can't wait to get to know each of you better! Read on to get to know me a little more:

    After moving to Missoula to attend the University of Montana in 2008, I quickly fell in love with education and our community. Although I graduated in 2013 with a B.A. in Elementary Education, I found myself in other various roles. Five years later, I rediscovered my passion for teaching and am so pleased for the opportunity to teach 6th grade science and mathematics alongside an incredible base of educators at HESD! Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our Goldendoodle, family, and friends. I also love to exercise, try new recipes, read, and of course recreating in our beautiful state.

    Please use this website as a resource for important dates, links, and more! I pride myself on my openness and transparency, so please don't hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns. See you soon!
