Degrees and Certifications:
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.
