Jess Farrand

I am a mama to these three rambunctious boys; Trey, Jamey, and Cauy! I grew up on the other side of the county in Sheridan, MT.  After graduating from college, I worked in Whitehall as a paraprofessional for two years then transferred my third year to Twin Bridges to be closer to home!

Anne Cree
Lead Teacher

I moved to West Yellowstone when I was 10. Just recently, I was visiting some family and friends here in Ennis and I enjoyed my time here so I decided to stay!  I have 12 siblings and was always the babysitter growing up. I enjoy anything outdoors and spending time with my family.

Sarah Bell
Lead Teacher

I was born in Claremore, Oklahoma but raised in Collinsville, OK. I went to school at Collinsville High School. I want to live & work in Montana to experience new things and opportunities in a new and beautiful place that is so peaceful. One thing that I like about Ennis is the people. They’re all so kind and positive!  I’m so excited to be working with children, it has been a dream of mine to work with children and now I get to help them grow and learn!

I have lived in the Madison Valley since 2006.  My husband and I have 3 children and love this place!  I enjoy skiing with my kids, time in the mountains, and traveling.  I have volunteered my time as the Ennis Girl Scout leader for many years.
