Mr. Christopher Linhart

Born and raised right here in Hobson. I grew up on Linhart Farms, which has been in my family for over 110 years. I graduated from Hobson High School in 2004 and headed to Butte, America to attend Montana Tech. In the Spring of 2008, I graduated with Honors with a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics with an emphasis in Education.

In the Fall of 2008, I started teaching in Helena at Capital High School. There I taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Algebra 2 for five years. In 2012, I got the opportunity to come back and teach math in Hobson and I jumped at the opportunity to return to this great community to teach and raise my family.

To expand my teaching and challenge myself in the Summer of 2015, I started to pursue my master's degree in Teaching Middle-Level Mathematics from the University of Montana. This experience is one I will never forget and profoundly changed the way I look at education and student learning. I finished the program in the Fall of 2016.

My next big educational endeavor began in the spring of 2019 when I ran for and won an election to represent educators in Central Montana by sitting on the Montana Council of Teachers of Mathematics Executive Board. This experience has helped me to grow in my confidence in representing others as well as help promote MCTM across the state. I have loved being part of this board and it is something that will continue to mold and shape me for years to come.

2023 has given me a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that is making me reevaluate how I engage and question students. Mr. Poser, Mrs. Wichman, Mrs. Hickey and myself were selected to be part of a STEM Teaching Fellowship through the University of Notre Dame. This program is focused on how we as educators ask quality questions of our students that also promote thinking in a deep and meaningful way. We spent two weeks on the University of Notre Dame campus as we started our three-summer journey to be better educators for our school.

2023-2024 marks my 16th year of teaching.
