This is my 12th year as the principal at LaMotte School. Previously I was the superintendent/principal at Monforton School and before that I taught middle school in the Bozeman District. I graduated from MSU in 1990 with my teaching credentials and in 1996 with my Masters in Educational Leadership; followed by superintendent and secondary administration endorsements in 1999. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work in the Gallatin Valley because this is where I grew up and where my parents live. My husband and I have twin boys, Max and Ben. The boys are students at LaMotte; for that we feel so fortunate. I have spent 25 years as an educator the last twelve have been the most rewarding. LaMotte is a community with caring parents, happy and well behaved, smart students and an amazing staff.
