Welcome Everyone!

    This is my tenth year at Hellgate Elementary. I feel so fortunate to be working with the wonderful families and the exceptional staff at HESD! I obtained a Masters and an Educational Specialist degree in School Psychology at the University of Montana in 2008.  I am also a Nationally Certified School Psychologist and worked in Kodiak, Alaska for two years before coming to Hellgate.  In addition, I have served as a Treasurer of the Montana Association of School Psychologists and try to stay involved in what is happening across our state.  My role is to help students succeed academically, socially, and emotionally through collaboration with school staff, parents, and outside professionals. Working together, we can create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments for all students.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me during this time of virtual instruction. I am available Monday-Friday from 8 to 4. I can be reached at my office phone (532-4031) or by email: khartwell@hellgate.k12.mt.us and will be checking my phone messages and email regularly. I am more than happy to set up a time to talk. I have included some resources I hope will be helpful to you and your family during this unprecedented time.
