Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to teach 5th Grade in Kivalina again this year. This will be my seventh year teaching in Alaska; I have taught in both Saint Michael and Anchorage. Prior to that, I taught in Utah and Colorado. Fifth grade is a wonderful year for students and my favorite year to teach. (I have also taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade.) My Basset Hound, George, is joining me in Kivalina. He is very friendly and likes to have his ears and back rubbed! I have a 27 year old daughter, Rachel, who lives in Anchorage with our cat, Tilly and bunny, Professor Hopkins.
I have a BS in Environmental Science and Forestry, a Post Baccalaureate in Elementary Education, and am working on a Master's in Reading.
Thank you for sharing your children with me this year.
