|You are here: TEMPERANCE TINKER|
Welcome to your English class!
This page will provide you with some key resources for your class with Ms. Tinker. Although I will be updating the calendar, it in no way replaces your participation and attendance in class.
I am looking forward to a challenging and fun year with you.
I'm excited for my eleventh year of teaching; teaching continues to be the best job that I've ever had because it is fulfilling to see young people reach their potential.
I hold a Masters' in Teaching from UAA, a Postgraduate degree in English from Otago in New Zealand, and a B.A. in Anthropology and English from NAU in Flagstaff.
Some of my favorite things include books on tape, fanny packs, travel, and the outdoors.
I used to live and teach in Cambridge, Massachusetts, but I am delighted to be back in Alaska enjoying its unique people and environment.
Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.
Temperance A. Tinker
(There will be NO summer reading assignments in ASD this year, but I encourage you to read voraciously whenever time allows!)
