I like to do many activities. In the winter I like to go snowboarding, and in the summer I like hiking, traveling, and photography.I was born in Portland, Oregon and my family moved to Alaska when I was 11 years old. I graduated from Wasilla High School in 1992 and attended Mat-Su Community College from 1992-1993. I then moved to LaGrande, Oregon and attended Eastern Oregon state college. I wanted to be a teacher ever since the 5th grade when I was in Mr. Campbell’s class at Snowshoe Elementary.
After I graduated from College I taught one year 3rd grade in Orange County, California then moved back to Oregon and taught Kindergarten in Hermiston, Oregon. My husband and I then moved to Alaska in 2001 and I taught Kindergarten at Snowshoe Elementary for three years then moved to first grade for three years. I always loved sports and teaching so when the P.E. position opened up at Knik Elementary I applied and got the job. I worked at Knik Elementary for five years and then transferred to Tanaina. I love teaching P.E.. My favorite part is helping the kids find activities that will help them stay fit later in life.Mrs. LaCossExpectationsIn the gym I expect everyone to participate and show good sportsmanship.
