Welcome to Ms. Strongś website.
I am so looking forward to working with your child this year, learning new things, exploring ideas, and building foundations for knowledge.

I was born and raised in the wide, open Gallatin Valley of South-Central Montana in a large and boisterous family. It was there that I learned to love words and information, stories and gatherings, good food and laughter. 
My education in traditional public schools was augmented by frequent trips to the public library and music lessons with my sisters, weekend trips to the mountains and rambling evenings spent along the river, picnicking and collecting.

I am blessed to have four adult children, who have brought beautiful spouses and children to my family sphere, further enriching my life with more stories, music, love and laughter.

In my leisure time I enjoy reading, gardening, and sewing. 
Outdoors, finds me riding my bike, walking the neighborhood, or on the river.

I was called to teaching and began my career in a one-room school with fourteen students from five families. 
Teaching has taken me into a variety of classrooms from pre-school to adults.
I am so delighted to be a part of the Primary Family at Idaho Arts Charter School, integrating the arts and elementary curriculum.
Indeed my dream job!

Please feel free to e-mail me at the school when you have any questions or concerns.
