Degrees and Certifications:


My name is Julie Almquist and I am a new Special Education teacher here at Big Lake Elementary. My family and I moved up this summer from Wyoming and am thrilled to now be living in Alaska. I have worked for many years in special education. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Special Education. I have 5 children, most of who are grown and having children of their own. I am an avid horseback rider and I love to read. I am so happy to be teaching at Big Lake this year!
