My name is MaryBeth Burke, and I am the school counselor, here at Smith Valley. The school year 2013-14, was my first year as a member of this great school!!

I was born and raised in Rhode Island and worked as a classroom teacher at the middle school and high school level, for a total of twelve years, and most recently, worked for the past thirteen years, as a school counselor in Providence , Rhode Island.

I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Providence College, and, also, my Master’s degree in Counseling and Guidance.

 In the summer of 2013, my husband and I (along with our 3 Labrador Retrievers) moved to Montana, to be closer to family  in Missoula.  It is a dream come true for us, to be geographically closer to our family, and enjoy the amazing beauty Montana has to offer!

I am very happy to work with so many wonderful people here at Smith Valley. I love working with our students, meeting them on an individual basis, and providing classroom guidance lessons.

When I am not working at Smith Valley, I enjoy hiking, knitting, reading, and playing the piano.  Being closer to our family, is priceless, and we visit often. I continue to marvel at the magnificent and awesome beauty that surrounds me here in Montana, and I love living here!
