My name is Mary Pat Penley and this is my 10th year teaching in Helena. I am the K-2 resource teacher at Bryant. The resource room is the place to go where all children can get what they need in order to be successful at Bryant Elementary.
I started teaching in 1993, after graduating from Eastern Montana College. After a few years of teaching in Montana, I married Tim and started moving all over the country. In 1997, I received my Masters in Special Education from the University of Northern Colorado. I have been lucky enough to teach in Virginia, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Hawaii. Tim and I have three kids, and are recent empty nesters:(
