Hello students and families! I'm looking forward to a great year at Wasilla High School. I love teaching and the unique experiences that I have with all of my students. I truly believe ALL students are essential to building a cohesive, energetic classroom. I strive to create an atmosphere where learning and joy go hand in hand. While education is the upmost importance in our schools, I also believe that fostering responsible, respectful, and safe relationships is essential in the success of my students as individuals.
I am not originally from Alaska, but have lived in Palmer since 2006. I grew up and lived most of my life in a small town in rural Oregon, so living in the great Mat-su Valley has been a blessing. I am married with two sons. One of my sons is a 2014 graduate of Palmer High School and the other is a 2017 graduate of Colony High School. My husband and I own/operate a commercial fishing business. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and a great cup of coffee! I love outdoor activities, hiking, kayaking, skiing, and walks are among a few. I am an avid traveler any chance I can get.
My door is always open, stop by and say Hi!
