    I am a homegrown Alaskan!  This is my 13th year at Tanaina Elementary as a Special Education Teacher.  This will be my fifth year teaching preschool. I graduated from UAA with a degree in Elementary Education.  I continued my education at UAS and earned my Masters Degree in Special Education.
    My husband, Toby, has worked in the oilfield for over 20 years.  
    We have two children that both attended Tanaina Elementary School kindergarten through 5th grade. 
    My son is a 2017 Wasilla High School graduate and swam on their swim team all four years.  He is currently attending college to become a Wildlife Biologist.  
    My daughter is a 2019 Wasilla High School graduate. She played on the WHS hockey team her sophomore year and was very busy playing on a girls' competitive hockey team the other three years.  She will be attending SUNY Potsdam in New York in the fall.  She will work on getting her degree to become a Physical Therapist while playing on their Womens Ice Hockey team. 
    We love hiking, biking and just getting out and exploring Alaska during the summer months as a family.
