    Hello 6th graders and families! I am very excited about working with each and every one of you. This will be my second full year here at Hellgate, I student taught in the 6th grade as well for the '21-22 school year.


    I graduated from Montana State University (Go Cats) with a BA in Elementary Education K-8. I was raised right here in Missoula, Montana and attended Loyola Sacred Heart High School. After receiving my bachelors in education, I finally made my decision to come back and call Missoula my home! I take my job as an educator very seriously. I strive to tailor my teaching to each of my students' individual needs. I strive towards creating a positive, inclusive and hands-on learning environment for all students. 


    Outside of school, I enjoy music, specifically guitar! I’ve been in a couple of bands and occasionally give lessons to anyone, regardless of skill level! In my free time, I enjoy things like hiking, hockey, basketball, chess, video games, and much more! 


    Please reach out to me with any questions you may have during the year. I look forward to working with you and your student(s)!
