My name is Tracy Verrall, and I was born in Chama, New Mexico more than a half a century ago! I attended Escalante High School in Tierra Amarilla, NM and graduated at the top of my class in 1979. I attended Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, NM and received a Bachelor's of Science degree in December of 1986. I began my teaching career in February of 1987, and I have now completed 33 years in the classroom! I have taught social studies, physical education, health, and language arts primarily. In 1995, I received my Master's degree in elementary education from Eastern New Mexico University. Throughout my career, I have continued to take classes to learn and grow as an educator.
In 2001, I moved to Alaska. I taught 4th and 5th grades at Iditarod Elementary for four years, then moved to Teeland Middle School where I taught language arts for 10 years. This is my sixth year as a librarian, and I LOVE it!
I have been married for 19 years to a valley local, Bert Verrall. We have three children between us, all grown, and 10 grandchildren. Four of our grandchildren attend school in the Mat-Su School District. Outside of school, I enjoy hiking, running, biking, quilting, reading, and doing crossword puzzles. Life is good!
