Mrs. Jessica Dufresne
A Montana native, I grew up riding my bike on the University of Montana campus. I have a BA in Elementary Education from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Montana. My Library Media Endorsement is from UM / UM Western. This will be my seventh year at Daly Elementary. I was a second grade teacher at Daly and moved into the library four years ago. Previously, I taught for 13 years in Darby, MT. During my time in Darby, I had the privilege to teach second grade, Gifted Education, and Title I. I feel blessed to be in a profession that I love and am thrilled to be in the library at Daly. Kids + Books + Technology!?! What could be better!?!
My spare time is spent with my family. I have a eighth grader and a fifth grader in the Hamilton School District. I love this district and am so proud to have my kids here! We like to spend time outdoors swimming, biking, camping, fishing, paddle boarding and skiing. My son and husband love football, so I watch a lot of that at home. My daughter loves to sing, play basketball and ride her bike. I am a singer and a lover of flea market decor. I tend to read out of the Young Adult section and am an "Ouligan" when it comes to exercise. Nice to meet you!
