I am a lifelong Alaskan, and so excited to work with the Alaska Statewide Mentor Project! I completed 29 years in education and can’t wait to work with early career teachers and their classrooms! I have a B.Ed. with Elementary and Early Childhood Endorsements as well as an M.Ed. in Cross Cultural Education from UAF. Besides teaching grades K-6 in Allakaket and Fairbanks, I have also worked as a Cross Cultural Partner Teacher and a Learning Styles Partner Teacher. A certified Dunn and Dunn Learning Styles Trainor, I have presented workshops to teachers through the Association of Interior Natives Educators in the Interior, North Slope, and Northwest Arctic regions of Alaska.
