Hi! My name is Montessa Stone and I am so excited to have the honor of working with you and your 2nd grade child this year! I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been teaching since 2001. I taught my first year in Palmdale, California and have been in Idaho ever since. I taught six years at Spalding Elementary and have been at Paramount since it opened in 2007. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education/Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Utah and my Masters degree in Education and Quality Schools from Graceland University.
On a personal note, I grew up in the very small town of Vale, Oregon. I moved to Salt Lake City after graduating high school to attend college. From there I moved to Califonia where I met my husband. We were married in 2003 and moved back to Idaho that same year. We are blessed to have two absolutely amazing daughters.
As your child's teacher I really believe that they all have special gifts and talents that allow them to shine in their own unique way. I will encourage your child each and every day to become the best that they can be. I welcome and encourage individual learning and creativity on a daily basis.
I am looking forward to an amazing year!!
