After graduating from Susquehanna University and working for several years in business I had the opportunity to teach English in Japan. When I returned to the USA, I completed a teaching degree at Adam’s State University in Colorado. Since 2004, I have worked for several Alaskan school districts in a variety of single and multi-grade classrooms. Most of my experience has been in small rural schools. During this time I completed a Masters in Special Education through the University of Alaska Southeast. 

We did take a short break from AK while my husband and I sailed across the Pacific Ocean. We spent one school year in the Republic of the Marshall Islands where I taught fifth grade.

We are very happy to be in Valdez where we can combine our interests in sailing and winter activities.
