Hello! Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I am so thrilled to be your child's teacher, and I have a lot of fun activities planned for them. This is my tenth year here at College Gate, but my fifteenth year teaching overall. I had previously taught 5th grade at Creekside Park Elementary and Ravenwood Elementary. I was born and raised here in Anchorage, having gone to Susitna Elementary, Wendler Junior High, and Bartlett High School. I graduated from Bartlett in 1999, and soon after, went to UAA to pursue my degree. I received my bachelors degree in 2002 majoring in Elementary Education and minoring in History. I'm very excited about this school year and will be working closely with Ms. Knox, Mr. Hopkins, and Mr. Tennyson in planning for all subject areas. As students continue to learn and explore, it is my goal that each child reaches his or her full potential. This should be a great experience for us all! This is an open classroom, so please feel free to come by and visit. We would love to have you come in. Thanks for your support, and I look forward to getting to know you throughout the year.
