Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome Timberwolves to the 4th grade! I am very
excited about our year together!
I would like to introduce myself to you and your
family. I was born and raised in Anchorage and moved
to the Matanuska-Susitna Valley in 1981. My husband
Dave and I have three beautiful daughters and two
wonderful grandchildren who live close by. I attended
UAA for both my bachelor and master's degrees. I have
been teaching at Tanaina for over 25 years and can
truly say that teaching is my calling. There is nothing
better than seeing the "light" come on for a student!
I am an avid gardener, fishing enthusiast, and love
running for the pure joy of it! I also love to sit down
with a good book and get lost in the adventure.
I look forward to working with you and your child.
I believe that we are a team and that communication
between school and home is the key that will make
this a successful school year. I am excited to meet
everyone and get our year started! We are going to
have a HOWLING good year together!
