Greetings from your Librarian / Media Specialist / Teacher, Stacey Schubert. Just a little background information on myself:
I am married to Sean Schubert, a teacher at King Tech and also an author!! We have twins who go to school at South High School. Originally I am from Indiana, getting my teaching degree from Purdue University. We moved to Alaska in 1993. I taught at Chinook Elementary from 1997 - 2017, grades 2-5.
