Mrs. Katrina Nilson

I obtained my Bachelor of Science Degree in Geology from Texas A&M University in 2001.  I then moved to Alaska and worked for the Division of Oil and Gas before beginning work as a Drilling Fluids Engineer on oil rigs on the North Slope.  During my work on rigs I decided that what I really enjoy is teaching and began pursuing my Master's Degree in Education.  I live in Palmer with my husband, Josh; two boys, Johnny and Cash; and an array of animals.  I enjoy both learning and teaching, and am so excited to begin a great year at Colony High School.  I look forward to working with the students, parents, and staff this year.
