Mrs. Amber Thurman


I am Mrs. Thurman, and I am the IAES teacher here at Mat-Su Day School!  IAES stands for "Interim Alternative Educational Setting."  What I do is I provide an opportunity for students who have an IEP to keep working towards their IEP goals and educational progress when they are suspended for 10 days or more.  


I enjoy the challenge of finding the positives in life, and I try to challenge my students to do the same through encouragement and consistency.   I work hard to ensure that the material and concepts I teach can have applications to the real-world situations that our students encounter, and I am open to those discussions that explore the relevance of education.
