Mr. Skinner

Many people spend their whole lives trying to find their "perfect occupation."  For me it is not a debate.  There has not been a day, I haven't been excited to face the challenges of the school day.  

Mr. Jonathan Skinner

I would like to introduce myself.  My name is Jonathan Skinner and I have been in education since 2004.  My career began at Beaverhead County High School as a geometry teacher.  In 2008, I was hired as a mathematics teacher at Sidney Middle School and obtained my master's degree in educational leadership in the spring of 2012.  I was then hired as an elementary principal at West Side Elementary School in Sidney, MT.  This is my first year as principal at Fairview Schools.  I will complete my superintendent licensure in the spring of 2019 and plan on beginning my doctoral degree in the fall of 2020.  Currently I also work for the state as a MTSS consultant.  I have a particular interest in data and identifying problems.

Following the completion of my doctoral degree, I plan on attending law school as a non-traditional student.  Follwoing law school, politics may be in the cards.
