Mrs. Elizabeth Lycan

Welcome to my home page. This is my second year working for the Matanuska Susitna School District. Teaching children in Alaska is an adventure that I love! I have been a certified teacher for almost 9 years, including 3 years as a Preschool and Kindergarten teacher in bush Alaska, and 1 year teaching preschool, here at Willow. I am excited to teach 1st grade this year and get to know my new students. 

I believe that parent/teacher communication is vital to a child's success in school. Please feel free to contact me to discuss any concerns or questions you may have about your child. I look forward to meeting all of my new parents as well.

Below is the 1st grade supply list that I will be using this year.
