I grew up in the Bitterroot Valley graduating from Corvallis High School in 1980. I received an Associate degree from Ricks College in 1982 then became a Montana Grizzly getting a B.A. in Education in 1982. I have been teaching at Frenchtown since 1997. I currently teach 4th grade. Because I love learning, I attended classes on weekends and received a Masters of Education in Literacy from Lesley University in 2005. I am married to Dennis Normand who teaches at Frenchtown High School. We have four children, Greg, Tyler, Blake, and Noel, who have all attended Frenchtown Schools. When I am not at school, I like to travel, sew, and craft.
