Coerina Fife was born and raised in Montana on the Flathead Reservation. Fife was inspired to get into education by her Great Aunt Addie, who taught in a one-room school house until she retired. She would often play school with her siblings and always chose to be the teacher.
She graduated from Utah State University with a bachelor’s degree in special education and later received her master’s in Educational Leadership from USU.
Fife believes all kids can achieve high levels of learning, and it is important to set expectations high and provide the tools necessary for each individual to succeed.
Her advice to parents is, “Believe in your kids. The world is open to them and they can accomplish their dreams! Feel free to come in and meet me, bring your concerns to me, or advice for me. I look forward to getting to know each of you!”
Fife is married with three children and two grandchildren. She enjoys restoring old furniture, playing racquetball, and spending time with family and friends.
