My name is Chrystina Jacobson. I will be teaching fourth grade for the 2018-19 school year here at Houghtaling. I grew up in Ketchikan and I am excited to start my 5th year of teaching in my hometown! I went to the University of Alaska Fairbanks and graduated with a BA in Elementary Education. I student taught at Ketchikan Charter school in fourth grade and then moved out to a small village on the Kuskoswaim River where I taught Kindergarten for three years.
I enjoy creating; I sew, craft, crochet, and anything else that I can make! I also love fishing with my dad, hiking with friends, and going to events around Ketchikan. I love reading as well and that is a huge part of my teaching philosophy. I am looking forward to the school year and all the celebrations and challenges that it will bring. I will be sending home weekly newsletters and other information on a weekly basis!
It will be a great year, I am looking forward to meeting everyone!
