Hi friends and family of Trapper Creek Elementary! My name is Jeannie Jurasek and I am the new 3rd-5th grade teacher. I am very excited to be working here this year! I actually grew up in this area and was a student at Trapper Creek Elementary myself. My experience as a student in Trapper Creek Elementary was very positive. The teachers were engaging, and the after-school activities always made me feel very connected to this community. I especially loved participating in the numerous number of plays, Kachemak Bay trips, basketball games and spaghetti feeds that were put on by the staff and community of Trapper Creek. Because of this great support network, I decided to become a teacher when I was in the fifth grade. So I pursued my dream and received my Bachelors of Arts in Elementary Education through the University of Alaska Fairbanks. I have come back to this community hoping to make a similar impact on my students as the teachers, staff, and community members did for me in my time here as a student. I look forward to meeting you and working with your children this year.
