Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to begin my first year of school counseling here in Selawik. Two years ago, I knew I would like moving to Selawik when the girl's basketball team stayed in my classroom while at the Shaktoolik Tournament. Your girls were fun to talk to and were respectful. Because of their example of your community, I knew if I changed positions, that this is where I would come.
I have been a classroom teacher for 30 years. I have taught at all grade levels in regular education, special education, and as a school technology specialist. My experience has been in Arizona, Michigan, Utah, and for the past three years, Alaska.
I LOVE Alaska! The Iditarod brought me here and I volunteer at the comms center in Shaktoolik every year for the race. What a fun experience I am able to have doing this. The people I have met in this state have reminded me what it is like when we are friendly and help eachother.
I look forward to being in Selawik for many years!
