I am originally from a small town in southern Oregon where I lived until I left for college. Before moving to Kotzebue I taught biology in Utah. This year I will be teaching 8th grade Life Science, Social Studies, and high school Biology.
I have always loved the outdoors and spend every possible minute enjoying the beautiful scenery around me. I enjoy hunting and fishing, so I know that Kotzebue is the perfect place to call home. I have enjoyed the experiences I have had here in Alaska, but most importantly I have benefited from meeting new people and enjoying a new culture.
