Welcome to Room 17 Fifth Grade

Hello Room 17 Families!  I am looking forward to a productive and fun school year.  I am starting my 29th year at Madison and my 33rd year in education. 
 
      I grew up on a ranch in the Bitterroot Mountains of western Montana.  I learned to ride a horse before l learned to ride a bike. 
      I went to college at Colorado Women's College and The University of Denver in Denver, Colorado.  After graduation, I returned to Montana to get my teaching credential at the University of Montana in Missoula.  I enjoy travelling with my family, reading, gardening, and shopping for my home. 
      I have high expectations for all of my students and my main goal is to prepare them to be successful at Madison academically and socially and to also prepare them for success in middle school. 
 
      I look forward to working closely with all of you this year!
 
Mrs. Wade
