Welcome! My name is Melissa Lahti. I am the elementary principal for the Lewis and Clark School District Berthold Elementary School. I am originally from Stanley, North Dakota, just 30 miles west of Berthold. I began my teaching career in Berthold in 2nd grade. Prior to that, I had taught 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th grade. I began my administrative career with the reorganization of the Lewis and Clark School District. I feel fortunate to be a part of this district and to work with such great parents, students, and staff. I am grateful for the parent involvement and the community support of the schools.
In my leisure time, I love to spend time with family, traveling, and reading.
