• Hello and welcome to 7th Grade Social Studies and 6th Grade Health!


    I am very excited about this year, as it will be my 3rd year teaching at HMS - now HJSH. I did my studies at the University of Wyoming where I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in 2009. My husband and I moved to Alaska five years ago. I have a strong passion for the outdoors: hiking, rafting, fishing, but my greatest passion is hunting. When I am not in the school teaching or at the field coaching track I can be found floating on a river or hunting in the back country with my husband. 

    I am excited to work with each and everyone of you throughout this year. Please do not hesitate to contact me at the email listed below or call my school extension if you have any questions, comments or concerns. I am looking forward to a superb year and I will do my best to make sure that every student of mine succeeds to their fullest potential!

    I light of the remote learning that we are now a part of my office hours are as follows:

    Monday-Friday 7:15 am - 2:45 pm I can be reached via phone, email. I will also be replying to emails until approximately 5:30 pm each day. 

    You can also set up an appointment time for a phone conversation or a Zoom Meeting.

    Optional Zoom meetings for my E. Hem. classe students will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at both 10:00 am and 1:00 pm.
