I have worked in the state as an educator for 19 years. My experiences have been very diversified from rural to urban, teacher to administrator. Districts I have worked in include Northwest Arctic, Fairbanks and Kodiak. My student teaching was done in Lake and Penninsula. I have taught pre-school to 12th grade, along with a year of correspondence traveling to remote fish camps. I have been an assistant principal and principal in Kodiak, as well as the special education director the last four years. I am very excited to be a mentor this year and I am looking forward to working with teachers new to the profession.
