My name is Jessica Kauffman. I am super excited to be teaching at Tanaina Elementary. This is my 7th year teaching at Tanaina and I love it!
I was born in Anchorage, Alaska and raised in Galena, Alaska. My dad was a teacher and my mom a paraprofessional in the school. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Alaska Anchorage and a Master's in Reading from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. I taught elementary for 13 years on St. Paul Island before moving to Wasilla. I have four children, Bessie, Taylor, Jeffery and Bay Rose with my husband Jeff.
I love spending time with my family and attending all of their basketball and baseball games. I also enjoy exercising (running), mowing the lawn on sunny days, traveling, and cooking!
