Mrs. Cathy McConnell

I have enjoyed teaching for 25 years here in the Northwest Arctic Borough School District! I currently am teaching 4th grade here at June Nelson Elementary. I am married to Denny McConnell and we have 4 wonderful children. My parents were also educators here in this district so this is truly home to my family and I!

I graduated from Kotzebue High School in 1985 and attended college at California State University of Los Angeles and then the University of Alaska, Anchorage where I received my degree in Elementary Education.

My hobbies include reading, baking, traveling, and watching movies. 

I enjoy playing basketball, volleyball, and running cross-country. I have coached all of these sports and love the rapport with my student-athletes!

My favorite part of my job is touching the lives of my students and watching them receive their high school diploma!
