School Staff

5 & 6 Math and 5 & 6 Reading and K-8 Specials

I am Mrs. Bobbi Jo Payne and this is my fifth year teaching at Pine Creek School. My family and I live on my family’s ranch, in a schoolhouse my great grandfather built, that many of my family members attended, including myself. I taught two years K-8th in Springdale School. Then I taught third grade in Clyde Park. While raising my four children, I worked in the Links Afterschool Program. I started teaching at Pine Creek School in the spring of 2012. Pine Creek School offers a unique experience for students, families, and teachers alike. I feel blessed to be a part of such a great team, teaching students that truly want to learn and families that are excited to be here.

Part Time Administration

As a retired Montana school administrator and teacher, I look forward to serving the part time administrative needs of the Pine Creek School District 19.   My pride in life is my four grown children and their spouses and my eight grandchildren; I look forward to sharing my time between my own family and my new Pine Creek school family.  In addition, I am crazy about scuba diving and traveling.  I enjoy traveling the world to see new cultures, elementary schools, fish, and coral.  I also enjoy diving in the cooler waters of Montana.     

I’m Ms. Ingrid Bonner and I’m excited to be Pine Creek School’s Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd homeroom and K-8 German/Music teacher. After growing up in Missoula, I earned my K-8 Elementary and K-12 German Teaching Degrees at MSU Bozeman. In the past two years, I’ve taught German and first grade. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, camping, traveling, and playing card/board games. I aim to instill each student with a strong work ethic and love for learning.

3-5 Homeroom, K-3 Music, K-3 Reading and Math Enrichment, K-3 Health and Guidance

My name is Ms. Stacia Denton. I am the 3-5 homeroom teacher and the K-3 music, health/guidance, and reading/math enrichment teacher. 

Teacher Grades 6, 7, 8

I’m Mr. Patrick Klein and I will be the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade homeroom teacher. I am a married father of two great kids ages 6 and 9. After completing undergraduate school, I became a Marine officer and helicopter pilot. I left the Marines in 2010 to stay home with my children while I was also completing my K-8 education licensure requirements. I taught at an alternative school in Livingston prior to accepting my position at Pine Creek. I am looking forward to meeting all of the Pine Creek Wolverines!
