Hello ! Welcome to

    My Radley Resource Page





    I grew up in Granite County, Montana.  After graduating high school, I attended the University of Montana in Missoula with a double major.  I graduated in 2003 with a bachelor's degree in psychology and a bachelor's degree in elementary education. 


    I began my career at the preschool level working with children with disabilities.  Following graduation, I began working specifically with children with autism in their home environments using a type of applied behavioral analysis called Discrete Trial Training. However, my dream was to have my own classroom!  I spent a year working in the Frenchtown Public Schools as a paraprofessional before taking a job in Great Falls as a fourth grade teacher.  


    As much as I loved teaching fourth grade, life had more changes as my husband and I chose to relocate to Helena for permanent employment and to start our "real" life.  I was happy to accept the teaching position here in the East Helena Public Schools and have been here ever since!


    Recently, I continued my education and my passion for psychology and education by obtaining my Masters of Science degree in educational psychology.  I also completed and received my National Board Certification in literacy.  These were both eye opening experiences and I was even more excited than ever to be a classroom teacher! 


    In 2020, I changed positions to become the Instructional Coach at Radley.  I love helping in the classrooms and finding ways to make Radley great!  


    I am married and have three children ages twenty, seventeen, and twelve that attend or have attended East Helena Public Schools!  As a proud parent, I recognize how important it is that children receive the best education they can and I strive to bring that attitude to our bulding.  If you ever have questions or concerns, my door is always open and I would love to hear your thoughts!
