I have been a teacher for 22 years in rural Alaska and at Kenny Lake School in the Copper River School District. I am currently a Business Education teacher in Anchorage.
My goal is to create a learning environment where I bring out the best in my students -- that's my North Star. My students have created a three award-winning documentaries, and won more than 20 awards for short films. I am a strong believe in project-based learning.

Bachelors of Arts in History and Political Science from the University of Utah; Masters of Arts from the University of Alaska Anchorage.
I love to hunt, fish, and live the subsistence Alaska lifestyle.
