During my 30 year career, I taught students at the following Great Falls schools:
West, Morningside, Meadowlark, Valley View, where I taught Elementary PE
North, where I taught Middle School PE
CMR, where I taught Freshman Health & PE
LESSONS LEARNED FROM TEACHING
Relationships make our lives richer and enhance learning. Relationships with co-workers made my job enjoyable every single day; there were many laughs and shared experiences with the many people that I worked with over the years. Developing relationships with my students created a positive, trusting environment for all of us.
THESE THINGS MAKE ME PROUD
I was a dependable, consistent influence within our department and for my students, and the friendships I have developed with other teachers and students (those that I am still in touch with). I enjoy seeing past students in their post CMR lives and hearing their stories. I enjoy being a part of their memories.
I will miss the relationships with my students and my coworkers.
Although I don’t have any specific plans yet, I do plan on lazy mornings reading the newspaper without a rush out the door, having more than 25 minutes for lunch, and creating new hobbiesI
I will also spend the fall watching my daughter play VB at the University of Utah, and during the wInter, I will watch my son play basketball at Providence (UP).
