Hello, I’m Bonnie, a second-grade teacher in a small mountain town in Montana.
I am a creative, dog loving, mountain bike riding, ex corporate employee who fell in love with teaching.
When I’m not teaching, you can find me traveling, creating digital resources, and enjoying beautiful Montana. I am a native Californian, who then moved to the East Coast, then to London, and finally landed in Montana.
I love all things techie and that love affair began with my first job out of college with CompuServe. Those were exciting times! Modems, dial-up, and email were all just coming on the scene, no wireless anything. I loved that job and worked for them for several years. I worked in California, and then Pennsylvania for the company. Those were fun times and seeing the seasons for the first time was incredible! In California, there are only two, summer and not summer 😉
Next, I moved to London to work for a British firm and stayed there for five years. I was so in love with the city, and the culture I thought I would never return. Then, 911 happened and even with all the technological advances, I felt very far away from my family in the United States. I stayed to finish my five-year contract, gained dual citizenship, and returned to the U.S., landing in Montana.
I followed my sister and her husband and ended up in Montana to this small ski town. It was here in Montana that I went back to school and got a BA in Elementary Education. I love learning and recently completed my MSEd in Literacy. All things reading has always been my first love.
