I was born and raised at Fairbanks and now I teach here. I am in my 21st year of teaching. I teach because I love kids. My heart is in kindergarten. I am married to my college sweetheart, Bryan and we have two kids, Makenna and Gage. Makenna is a 10th grader and Gage is a 6th grader. Both attend Fairbanks and are heavily involved in sports. I spend most evenings and weekends on the field or in a gym but love every minute. When I am not doing that, I enjoy church activities, being with family, shopping, crafting, drinking coffee, and looking on Pinterest. Yes, I am addicted! My summers are filled with swimming, reading, 4-H, fair, and vacationing (preferably at the beach). I hope you enjoy seeing all the fun we have being learners!
