Miss Carrie Axelson
As the PE teacher at Fawn Mountain Elementary, I am incredibly excited to share my passion for athletics with the students out here on the south end of town!
I grew up in Ketchikan, commercial fishing with my family while my parents homeschooled my siblings and I. I played soccer from elementary school through college and jumped at every opportunity to be involved in sports and activities throughout the local schools and community. When I'm not in the gym, I spend my time with my husband and our dog, hiking through the alpine looking for deer and views and fishing my way through the creeks and rivers, taking advantage of all the incredible outdoor adventures that Southeast Alaska offers. I graduated from the University of Alaska Southeast in 2020 with a BA in Elementary Education. During my time in school and on the field I discovered a love for helping kids thrive in the world of health and movement.
My goal is to facilitate a safe and encouraging training ground for my students where they can develop skills for extracurricular activities as well as practice functional movements for their everyday life.
