School Staff & Contact List

Annelies Pedersen

Greetings and Salutations, 
I feel so fortunate being a part of this amazing community and being involved in your children's lives because they are all UNIQUE individuals.  My goal is to be a positive and helpful resource to your student(s), your family, and your teachers.  
Please feel free to introduce yourself!  I am here to assist in the process of 'success' for all of our students.

My personal history.... I grew up in San Rafael, California with my parents and younger brother.  In 1998, I completed my undergraduate work (a B.A. in Psychology) at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR, and studied abroad for a semester in Kenya (Fall 1995).  I volunteered for AmeriCorps (Partnership for Student Achievement) during the 1998-1999 school year at Barnes Elementary.  I moved to Montana for a year--18 years ago!  I graduated with my Masters in School Counseling from the University of Montana in 2006.  To my utter joy, I became a mother in 2008 and again in 2010. I became a part of the Cayuse community in the Fall of 2009.

Tidbits on me: Love hiking, tubing, skiing (downnhill and cross country), reading, eating, rafting and being with friends and family. Being the mother of two wonderful boys, Bjorn (9.5 years) and Willem (7.5 years) completes me. I believe education comes in many forms and paths that continues throughout our lifetime.
