Ms. Finlay

Welcome to 7th grade Language Arts! I'm excited to get started with the 2023-2024 school year at Hellgate Elementary. 

I grew up in Florence, MT, playing basketball and raising pigs. After high school, I attended the University of Montana, where I earned degrees in English Education and Psychology Education. During college, I also worked as a Barton Reading Specialist for students with dyslexia. This past summer, I started my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I am eager to begin my fifth year at Hellgate! When I'm not teaching, I love to spend time with my family and friends, read, and explore Missoula's and the Bitterroot's offerings. 

Please let me know if you have any questions. The best way to reach and stay in contact with me is through email: You can also call me at 406-728-5626.
