Ms. Keriann Gilson

Ms. Gilson grew up right here in Valdez. She is thrilled to be back again as an adult teaching high school English. She began her teaching career in Sitka, where she spent two years teaching A/P, Creative Writing, Theatre, Speech/Debate, and Surveying Literature. From there, she moved to Kenai, where she taught 10th grade World Literature for two years before applying to Valdez. In her spare time, she enjoys writing poetry, cross-stitching, paper crafting, writing, gaming, and spending time with her cat.

Ms. Gilson currently teaches 10th & 12th grade English and Theatre.
