Mrs. Natalie Porec

I am originally from Colorado then went off to college in Hawaii. I taught in Waipahu, Hawaii for 10 years, mostly in lower elementary grades.  Last year I taught second and third grade in a village outside of Bethel, Alaska . I have two kids, my son Taj is going into 8th grade and my daughter Lola is going into 4th grade. My husband is also teaching English here in Kotzebue.  We have lived abroad in Chile and Costa Rica. I enjoy hiking, shopping, traveling, going to the beach, taking pictures, and teaching kids!  I am very excited to be here in Kotzebue at June Nelson and teaching second grade this school year.  I am determined to make learning fun to matter what and look forward to an exciting school year!
