    Image result for welcome I am a high school graduate from Columbus, Montana. I attended Northwest Community College on a basketball scholarship upon graduation. In 2008, I transferred to MSU-Billings and pursued a degree in English Secondary Education. I graduated in 2012 and began teaching in Sidney the following fall. In February of 2020, I obtained my Masters in Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum with an English Minor from Colorado State University-Global Campus.  

    I have been married to my husband, Levi, for seven years and we have a beautiful two-year-old, Lydia. We have 5 fur-babies, two dogs, and three cats. We enjoy being outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, and camping. We also enjoy watching movies/shows and football.

    I am entering into my 9th year of teaching at Sidney High School and am looking forward to making this new school year a great one, despite the changes required due to COVID-19! However, I plan on adjusting curriculum and lessons due to COVID-19 and ask students/parents to be patient, understanding, and kind, as I will be practicing the same mantra with my students and their assignments. I will also have a Virtual Classroom set up through Google, and will post regularly (if not daily) for students who are absent.
