Master of Arts in Teaching Elementary Education K-8
Welcome! My name is Kelly Mrozik and I am a first grade teacher at Dena'ina Elementary School. I have had the great privilege of working at Dena'ina since the first year we opened in 2016. I started out as a parent volunteer and quickly realized what an amazing community we have here at Dena'ina. I knew that I wanted to do more than volunteer, so I began working as a substitute teacher. During this time, I fell in love with the teaching profession and knew that I was meant to be in the classroom. While working as the building substitute, I earned a degree in Elementary Education. In 2019-2020, I taught music to all Dena'ina students in grades K-5. Although I loved teaching music, I am so happy that I have found a home in first grade. Every day is a chance to learn and grow, and I am fortunate to be able to do that with such wonderful students, staff, and families.
I have lived in Alaska for 15 years now and love what this great state has to offer. My favorite activities are camping, hiking and hunting with my husband and two children. I also enjoy gardening and reading.
If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!
