    Litcelle Prouty

    Litcelle was born and raised on the island of Saipan in the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands (CNMI). Her biological family originates from the Philippines, but was seperated from them in November of 2007 due to some unfortunate circumstances. At 14 years old, Litcelle moved to Washington state in January of 2008 with her adpoted family. They lived in Spokane, WA for 2 years and then eventually moved to Wellpinit, WA to conclude her high school education at Wellpinit High School on the Spokane Indian Reservation where her mom taught science. There, she met her husband James Prouty and graduated as Salutatorian of her class in June of 2011. That same summer, James and Litcelle moved to Dillon, MT to attend college at the University of Montana Western. Soon after, the couple returned home to be married in their family church in Ford, WA in May of 2012. Four years later, James graduated with a degree in Biology and the year after, Litcelle graduated with a degree in Secondary Education and General Science. The couple moved back home to Ford where they lived temporarily to save money to buy their first home in Deer Park, WA. After three short months of job searching, Litcelle began her teaching career at Paideia High School as a science teacher in August of 2017 and has since found a place to call her 2nd family at work. As life progressed and plans were made, the couple purchased and sold their first home in Deer Park within the span of 3 years and welcomed their first baby, Juliana Grace Prouty in March of 2020. They have since moved back to Ford to make new future plans as a family of 3 (and 1 baby dog named Luna). Their next adventure involves purchasing land around the area to build a forever home with their God's blessing and wisdom in the years to come. As a teacher and a mentor, Litcelle has a passion for inspiring young minds to explore the world beyond the Pacific Northwest and to find a sense of purpose in their lives as she has.
