Hello! My name is Jennifer Jilot. I am an enrolled member of the Chippewa-Cree tribes from Rocky Boy's reservation. I'm currently in my 5th year at Arlee High School. I've been teaching for 15 years. I began teaching here in Arlee, in the junior high. I was the social studies teacher for a couple of years. I then transferred to Dixon where I taught 5th-8th grade social studies, language arts, and physical education. I was also the track coach. In 2007, I began teaching at Nkwusm Salish Language School. I spent 5 years there teaching grades ranging from 1st through 8th grade. In 2012, I decided to persue my M.Ed in Literacy Education/Curriculum and Instruction as well as a high school English endorsement. While at the University of Montana, I taught a few courses for soon to be and current educators. After graduation in 2015, I returned to Arlee as a Literacy Coach. When the grant ended, I transferred to the English department. I now teach sophomore and senior English, English credit recovery, and a writing course. I'm also the facilitator for the Arlee Indian club and the MTSS initiative. I hold three teaching endorsements; k-8 elementary, 5-12 English, and k-12 reading.
