Mrs. Dunleavy


Welcome! I am very excited and thankful to be working with your child this year at Cottonwood Creek Action School! I grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina and previously worked with students in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District. I moved to Columbia, South Carolina to complete my Master's Degree in Social Work and worked at Palmetto Health Children's Hospital for 7 years. My husband and I moved to Alaska in 2014 and are enjoying living in this beautiful state! We have two sons, Luke and Clark, and two dogs, Missy and Copper. This is my 5th year in the Mat Su Borough School District. This year, I am the behavior support teacher at Cottonwood. I am working with a wonderful group of paraprofessionals- Mrs. Tobin, Mrs. Landrum and Mrs. Willis. We all work as a team to support your child. Please call or email me any time. I welcome questions, feedback and input from students and families. I am looking forward to a great year!
