    Dear Families,

    Welcome back to all the returning families and a warm welcome to our new families!


    For those of you that don’t know me, I will tell you just a little about myself. I have been teaching for ….well, let’s just say many years! I have a BS in Elementary Education K-8, with a minor in Early Childhood. I began my career in the Lower 48, by teaching in the primary grades: First Grade and Kindergarten.  After moving to Alaska in 1992, I taught preschool at Head Start for seven years, until accepting a position at Midnight Sun in 1999, where I taught in a multi-age class of 2nd-8th graders. In 2014, I decided to return back to the primary grades, where I currently teach a multi-grade K-2 primary class. As you may have already noticed, I love dogs!  (I should, since I presently own 15 of them!)  My husband and I have a small recreational sled dog kennel called “Happy Howls Kennels.” Many of my dogs are older and retired now, so our focus has  changed to a somewhat slower pace, concentrating on making their last years as comfortable as possible, but we still have a lot of fun. I am a wife, a mother and a grandmother, and I am fortunate that four of my grandkids live here in Alaska.
