• Ellen Fjeseth (Ellie)

    Ever since she was a little girl, in Dillon MT, Ellie wanted to be a teacher. She figured it was the easiest way to become rich (and have summers off). After graduating from Carroll College (GO SAINTS!) she set out for the coldest place on earth...No not the North Pole, Montana's very own Cut Bank. After teaching special education to the amazing first, second and third graders for two years she decided to join the enthusiastic staff in Arlee. Ellie enjoys exploring the great state of Montana, reading, football, country music and spending time with her family, especially her two adorable nephews! Ellie is very excited for the year and looking forward to working with and learning from students and staff alike!
