My name is Katie Sivertsen and this is my second year at Point Higgins Elementary School and first year in PE. I taught 2nd grade last year, and previously taught at Tongass School of Arts & Sciences.
I grew up in Palmer, Alaska, a small town in the Mat-Su Valley sandwiched between the Chugach and Talkeetna Mountains. I earned my undergraduate degree in Outdoor Studies at Alaska Pacific University in Anchorage, then spent a few years skiing and climbing around Alaska and the western United States. I attended graduate school in Juneau and earned my Master of Arts in Teaching, and recently completed my Masters of Education Reading Specialist.
I love to run, hike, read, knit, and go on adventures with my three-year-old son Canyon, husband Leif, and Kaya Sue, our dog.
