Teaching sophomore English, helping with computer problems, maintaining CMR’s web page, running Montana’s digital academy, and budgeting for the media center are all in a day’s work for media specialist/ teacher Amy Borger.  

This year is the first year of Borger’s 14 years at CMR when she has been able to get out of the media center and into a classroom.

“I love it,” she said. “It’s a lot of work and a different schedule than what I am used to, but it’s great.” 

However, this is not Borger’s first time in the classroom.

“My first two years in the district I worked at Morningside and Lincoln teaching kids,” she said.

Borger works with English 3-4 kids that have, “extreme reading problems,” she said.

The class aims to work with students at their level, making sure they’re able to understand the material. The class also acts as a transition class, helping the students to read their math, history and science books.

Though the transition has been hard, Borger said she would not have it any other way.

“You just get so use to a routine,” she said. “I just need to find mine.”
