Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Carin Metzger
I am the proud mother of three daughters and 1 son ranging in age from 13-36, grandmother to five beautiful grandchildren, and married to my wonderful husband for 31 years now. We have been blessed to be able to travel the world in the military before we finally settled down in Wasilla, AK. We are Texans by heart but feel Alaska is our future.
I worked as a clinical therapist in psychiatric hospitals for many years in my first career. Due to family circumstances, I decided to change careers to be home more with the family. I became an Elementary School teacher in San Antonio, Texas for many years. We were transferred with the military to Elmendorf AFB in Alaska. I have held many different teaching jobs to include Title One Specialist before finding my home as a Behavior Support Special Education Teacher and now a K-2 Intensive Resource Special Education Teacher. I started in Anchorage at the Day School before transferring to Wasilla to work at North Star Residential Treatment Center School on Lazy Mountain. I have finally found my home place: Tanaina Elementary. I have been at Tanaina Elementary now for 8 years and hopefully many more to come.
