Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to spend my 14th year of teaching here at Su-Valley, as this is where I started my teaching journey. I was an intern teacher here in 2006, and have spent the years since teaching in McGrath, Healy, Bangkok (Thailand), and Tunisia (North Africa). My family moved home to Talkeetna this spring, and I am happy to be back in the Su-Valley community.
I have bachelor's and master's degrees in chemistry and worked for several years in an oil refinery laboratory in North Pole. My teaching experience includes 5th through 12th grade math, science, health, PE, and English. I look forward to sharing what I've learned in this journey with our students.
When not teaching, I usually spend my time outdoors with my family. I've been overseas for the last seven years, and I can't wait to get out and play in the snow.
