Welcome to Frank Brattin Middle School
2019-20 New Principal is Mrs. O’Toole!!
I am excited to be the principal at Frank Brattin Middle School. It is a pleasure to be part of such
a wonderful school with a great faculty and students. I look forward to working with the school
family and the community throughout the year. My family and I moved to Montana from Florida
in 1975. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to see Colstrip grow and mature in a variety
of ways. I attended elementary and high school in Colstrip, graduating in 1985. I had the honor
of attending Eastern Montana College, now MSUB, and graduated with my Bachelor’s of
Science Degree in Elementary Education and an Endorsement in Reading. Years later, I
attended Rocky Mountain College to obtain my Masters of Educational Leadership and my
Superintendent Endorsement. Throughout the years, I have had the opportunity to teach in
some capacity in all grades K-8. I have taught in the Colstrip Public School system for 29 years!
I have also been a Girls Middle School basketball coach for several years. I have had the
pleasure to be the leader of the Brownies and Girl Scouts troops. I am married to my husband
John, who is a Rosebud County Deputy Sheriff. Together, we have a beautiful daughter, Sara,
who is currently a Junior at CHS.
It has been a privilege to work for the Colstrip Public Schools! I look forward to many more
