Where is time going? The Fourth Graders at Moore have accomplished so much so far this year, I can't believe it. We have studied castles, pandas, the digestive, circulatory, skeletal, and respiratory system and so much more. These little minds are amazing and they teach me so much each day. With Christmas vacation right around the corner we are trying to finish up some things we have been working on and just getting started on others but we are looking forward to a little family time and lots of rest and relaxation. Most of all we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
Welcome fourth graders to the 2017-18 Moore School Year!
I am excited to get started. We have a lot of fun learning experiences already planned for the year. My philosophy is to have fun while you are learning so that is what we are going to do. We will be welcoming a new student, Charlotte into our classroom and I know she will fit like a glove. See you all on Wednesday!

Hi my name is Jennifer McAllister. I was born in Havre, Montana in 1972. I then moved to Helena with my family and stayed for a short time before moving to Glasgow, Montana where I attended Kindergarten through my senior year. It was in Glasgow where I met my husband Jay. We met when we were in 6th grade and continued to stay together until we were married in 1995. We welcomed our first child, a beautiful baby girl, Taylen, in 1996. Shortly after in 1998 our second child, Chance was born and then in 2000 we were blessed with another baby boy, Jacob.
I graduated from MSU-Northern in 1995 with a degree in elementary education. Moving back to Glasgow, I received my first job in Frazer, Montana, where I taught special education for two years. In 1997 we moved to Lewistown, Montana. I decided at this time to stay home and raise my children and substitute in the Lewistown Schools. In 1999, I took a job at Deerfield Colony, and taught for one year. In 2006 we came to Moore, Montana where I began teaching music. I have been in Moore for 10 years and within that 10 years I have been fortunate to teach choir, band, elementary music, 7th grade math, gifted and talented, second grade, third grade, fourth grade and now sixth grade. In 2010 I started working for the state as an OPI consultant and I continue to do this today, which keeps me updated in education.
I love being in Moore. I love working in my garden, reading, hanging out with my family, camping, scrapbooking, and continuing my education daily. I have two labs, Jazzy and Mudd and one cat, Mouse, all of whom I love very much. I feel very blessed to be a TEACHER. I wanted to be a teacher every since I can remember and I would never go back and change anything about my teaching career so far. I also love learning. Kids are our future and I have the opportunity everyday in making miracles happen (somedays the miracle happen to me) and I am proud to admit it.
