About Mrs. Knabe

I am a graduate of Clinton High School and am privileged to serve as the Clinton Public Schools Secondary Curriculum Director. 

In 2005, I earned my BA in English and art from Southwestern Oklahoma State University. (Go Dawgs!)

My family and I moved to Ronan, MT, in 2006 where I taught English and Art at Ronan High School. I also coached basketball and RHS Speech, Drama, and Debate, for which I earned MFEA Class A coach of the year for the 2010-2011 season due to the outstanding performances and hard work of my competitors. They continue to make me proud to have been their coach. 

I earned my M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction in May 2010 from Montana State University (Go Cats!)

My family and I returned to Oklahoma in the summer of 2012 to be closer to our family. As a teacher with Clinton Public Schools, I have taught technology to 5th graders at Washington, English and reading to 7th and 8th graders at Clinton Middle School, and English and art to Clinton High School students. My husband, Greg, is also a CHS alumnus and a photographer. Our son, Michael, is now a CHS alumnus (Go Big Reds!), an infantry Marine (Semper Fi, Devil Dogs! OOHRAH!), and married to Sera, a hospital corpsman in the Navy.  I am a proud Marine MoM!
In addition to working for the district, I volunteer with several organizations. I serve on the boards of Eastside Academy and the Clinton Arts Council, I am a parent volunteer with Marine Parents, and I volunteer for GOTV efforts at the local, county, and state levels.  
I spend my free time hiking, swimming, biking, cooking, attending cultural events, and exploring the countryside through the lens of a camera. I also work in ceramics, acrylic painting, and creative writing, and I read voraciously. I am an avid football (Go Pack!), hockey (Let's Go Redwings!), and track fan.
