Glen Wall – Social Studies

Hello! My name is Mr. Wall.  I have been a middle school teacher (HMS & CRA) here in Helena since 2000.  I am proud to say that I am a product of the Helena School District, graduating from Capital High School in 1995 (also attended Four Georgians & CRA).  I completed my Bachelors of Science in Education at Montana State University – Billings.  In 2002 I finished my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Montana State University – Bozeman.  (But I am a Griz!!!)

I am also actively involved in the community having coached soccer for over 20 years, at Capital High School and with the Helena Arsenal club.  Here at CRA I am involved with the Geography Bee, coaching track, and much more.
