    Image result for welcome I am a high school graduate from Columbus, Montana. I attended Northwest Community College on a basketball scholarship working towards an associate degree in Business Administration upon graduation. I then transferred to MSU-Billings and pursued a degree in English Secondary Education with English extended. 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, and English, from Colorado State University-Global Campus.  

    Other than spending as much time as possible with my family and beautiful daughter, I live for being outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, and camping. I also find time to enjoy movies/shows, football, writing and reading, wood-burning art, as well as weight-lifting, and playing basketball.

    I am entering my 9th year of teaching at Sidney High School and am looking forward to making this new school year a great one! I recently moved from teaching primarily sophomores to Juniors and upper-level seniors; I am very excited for this transition and look forward to the change in curriculum. I have a Virtual Classroom set up through Google and will post regularly (if not daily) for students, especially those who are absent.
