Middle School Math & Science- Extension 505
My name is Tad Drake and I am the middle school math and science teacher at LaMotte. I received my Masters in Education from MSU and a BA in Natural Science from St. Johns University in Minnesota. After leaving my home state of Wisconsin, I taught experiential and environmental education for a variety of school districts and outdoor science schools across the country for 15 years. My home is now in Montana where I have resided for eight years with my wife and two young children. In our free time we enjoy cross country skiing in the winter and gardening in summer among other outdoor activities. The educational environment and community of LaMotte reflects who I am to the core and I could not dream of a more inspirational and meaningful setting to be a classroom teacher.
