Mrs. Lydia Elgas
I am happy to be starting my 15th year of teaching and my 9th year at Manhattan Junior High. What a great age! I speak from experience since my husband, Dennis, and I have two daughters, a junior in high school and a sophomore in college. I also have three "furry children" (although my daughters remind me that technically I am their dogs' grandmother).
We've been living in the Gallatin Valley for over 20 years, and I was raised just over the hill in Paradise Valley outside of Livingston. My hobbies are reading (imagine that from an English teacher!), running, spending time enjoying Montana with my family, and cheering on the Chicago Cubs.
