    Tanaina's Front Office Secretary
    (907) 352-9400

    Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year
    at Tanaina Elementary.  
    Please let me know how I can help to
    make it the best it can be!!!
    My family and I moved to the Valley from Anchorage in
    1998.  I have been at Tanaina ever since then for the past
    19 years in one capacity or another ranging from: parent
    volunteer, PTA Board, substitute teacher, recess monitor,
    and, for the last 17 years, I have had the privilege
     to work in the front office.
    I have an AMAZING husband of 34 years, 3 married
    children, and soon will be welcoming my 7th grandchild in
    less than a total of 6 years.  I am truly blessed!
    Just a "little" fun or maybe crazy fact:
    I love things that are smaller or bigger than they
    should be, thus I have a consistently growing collection
    of minature things (not enough room for the big ones) on
    display in the front office. They make me happy and grab
    the attention  of students, parents, and visitors
    as they view only a "small" amount of my collection.
    I guess you could say:
    It's the "little" things in life
    that make me happy! 
     It's the "little" things.
    I am very fortunate to have the pleasure of greeting,
    assisting, and forming relationships with our Timberwolf
    families, visitors, and community while working together
    with such an AWESOME Tanaina staff.
     I am thankful, indeed!
    Here's to an amazing
    2017-2018 school year!!
