Profile of Nancy Brastrup

I have been involved with the Montana Heritage Project since 2003. I have taken on the philosophy of believing “yesterday’s history impacts the present day”. I strongly feel that I need to involve my history students in discovering how the past continues to play a part of their lives. The past never truly dies. Through the Montana Heritage Project, I assist students to recognize the strings which tie students to the past and incorporate their knowledge into learning valuable skills. These skills, in turn, will help students to be productive and participating citizens. I am also involved with two other programs, the Montana Economic Education Leaders and the CHILD Grant Project, which help teachers to develop economic and technology skills that we will bring back to our classrooms.
I am an outdoors person, who enjoys doing many things with my family, Chad, Walker, and Derek. Many weekends you can find us hiking, camping, and/or snowmobiling. After acquiring my teacher’s degree from Montana State University, I moved to White Sulphur Springs in 2000. I chose White Sulphur, due to the fact that this hometown offers the comfort of neighbor knowing neighbor, several recreation options, and years of community pride.
