Angela is privileged enough to call MEA her first home, as her parents, Gary & Marirose Force, taught here in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. She’s lived all over the country, from Oregon to Massachusetts and several places in between. In 2014, she and her family were able to move back to Bozeman. She is grateful to be able to see the Montana mountains every day.

Angela earned a B.S. in Elementary Education from Union College. While her primary field of study and work is elementary school, she has always had a love for learning and teaching languages. Angela has taught English as a Foreign Language overseas and English as a Second Language at several schools here in the States. She loves working with the international students and experiencing their different perspectives. Most recently, Angela has been thrilled to reignite the Fine Art and Home Art Departments. Both these areas have been long time passions for her. It is her belief that these departments can offer new ways for our students to experience the world around them.

In her free time, Angela can be found pursuing many different hobbies: reading, running, baking, art, children’s ministries, and language learning. Mostly though, she’s taking care of her family. She has two kids with Seth, our math teacher: Enoch and Gwendolen.
