I am the Computer Science teacher at Frank Brattin Middle School in Colstrip, MT. I grew up in Great Falls, MT, and graduated from Great Falls High School. Go Bison! I moved to Missoula and attended the University of Montana for my Bachelor's in Elementary Education. Go Griz! After graduating, my wife and I moved to rural Montana and taught in Lame Deer for 7 years. About half way through my tenure there, I earned a Master of Science in Science Education from Montana State University through the Big Sky Science Partnership Grant. During my time in Lame Deer, I taught a little bit of everything: middle school Math/Science/English, 4th grade, K-6 Math Intervention, K-6 Technology, and 3rd grade. In 2015-2016, I began teaching in Colstrip and taught 7th Language Arts for 1 quarter, 6-8 Physical Education for 2 quarters, 6-8 Math for about 3 quarters, and 6th Geography the whole year! I also went through the process of becoming a Level 1 and Level 2 Google Certified Educator. 2017-2018 is second year as the computer science teacher and I am enjoying it immensely. I use Code.org CS Discoveries, Google Applied Digital Skills, and several other web tools and sites to teach students about computer science.
