Ms. Anna BaldwinThis is me just after exiting the front doors of the White House! I had the opportunity to meet President Obama in May 2014 as part of the state Teachers of the Year ceremony.Welcome! I am pleased to have been teaching on the Flathead Reservation since 1999, and at Arlee High School since 2003. I earned a Master's degree in English teaching in 1999 from the University of Montana and a Bachelor's degree in English literature in 1994 from Georgetown University. I finished my doctoral program in Curriculum and Instruction at UM in May 2012. I am the 2014 Montana Teacher of the Year.I taught English in Nicaragua, overseas on a Pacific island, and at the University of Montana. I have traveled to many places and tried to learn about as many different cultures as I can. In 2015 I spent 10 days in Peru, and in June 2016 I spent 5 days in Havana, Cuba - a dream of mine!In my non-academic time, which adds up to about 20% of my life, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family. I attend local powwows and other community events and try to show my children the richness and diversity of our area as well as teaching them about other places.The photo below was taken in August 2009 when I traveled to Alaska with my children on the ferry to visit our friends in Ketchikan. What a trip! We slept on the deck in sleeping bags alongside about forty strangers. Alaska was my 50th state!
