    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!!
