All About Mrs. Gemelke

All About Mrs. Gemelke


My name is Mary Jo Gemelke.  I grew up in a small town in northeastern Montana.  Hinsdale is a farming community and is the home of the Raiders.  I grew up on a farm and have been around animals like cows, horses, and rabbits all my life. 

I graduated from Montana State University-Northern in Havre, Montana with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.  I moved to Hawthorne to become a teacher in 2000 and have been here ever since!  I have taught kindergarten, 2nd, 4th, and Jr. High computers.  The students that I taught in kindergarten are going to be 9th graders this year.  Time flies when you are having fun.

I am married and have a 3 year old son.  He is a very busy young man and keeps us very busy.  He will be starting preschool this year.  We have 5 pets; 3 dogs and 2 cats.  My interests include reading, gardening, spending time with family and friends, and traveling.  My latest trip was to Sun City, California.  While there I was able to attend a comedy show featuring Ralphie May and go to the city of Oceanside to play in the ocean.

I'm looking forward to having a wonderful school year.  If you ever have any questions or concerns, please contact me.  My email address is  You can also reach me during school hours at 945-1000.
