Miss Courtney Priestley

I am so happy to be a part of the Lynx family here in Kiana this year! This is my second year teaching in the district, but my first year in Kiana. I have enjoyed teaching in the district, but this position is my favorite by far! I am teaching fourth grade at the elementary. I have also been able to coach volleyball and girls basketball with the high school. 

I graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho, with my degree in Elementary Education and an emphasis in Language Arts in March 2020. I was able to then teach in Kivalina last year as a first-year teacher.

I was born and raised in Weston, Idaho and have lived in Idaho my whole life, until I moved to Alaska last school year. I love adventures and have loved living here in Kiana this last year.
