Ms. Ginny Schmalix


Welcome!  After 20+ years in the Coast Guard, my husband retired and we chose to settle here in the Mat-Su Valley.  This is my fourth year teaching for MSBSD, and I am super excited to be here.  I taught formerly in the classroom as a second and third grade teacher. 


I am an English Learner teacher providing instructional support for students that speak English as their second language at both Iditarod Elementary and Dena’ina Elementary.  My role is to assist classroom teachers with your child improving English Language skills in the areas of Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing.  My role is also to advocate for your child’s specific needs and cultural identity, as I believe they are vastly important. 


I love working with kids and families, and I am hopeful to help your child have an excellent year.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions, concerns, or would simply just like to say, “Hi.”
