Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education & History from Luther College. Masters of Science in Educational Theory and Practice from Arkansas State University.
I've lived in Alaska pretty much my whole life and went to some of the same schools that many of my students have growing up. I graduated in 2000 and headed to Decorah, Iowa, to attend Luther College. I majored in Elementary Education and History and graduated in 2004. I taught in a special education classroom at Wasilla High in 2006-2007 and then spent two years at Mid-Valley High School (now American Charter Academy) and then I returned to Wasilla High. I have also coached basketball here at Wasilla High School since the 2006-2007 school year and off and on at Wasilla Middle School over the years.
Some of my other hobbies besides teaching and coaching are: reading, writing, listening to music, spending time with friends and family, and cheering for the Chicago Cubs, Duke Blue Devils, and San Antonio Spurs.
