Lynsey's Bio

I was raised in a small fishing community on Prince William Sound in Alaska. I participated in a variety of activities in High School, all of which taught me the value of hard work, perseverance and being mindful of the world around me. These qualities helped to shape who I am and I hope to instill some of these values in the students I teach!

I am excited to begin another year teaching at Academy of the Redwoods. I graduated from Humboldt State University with a degree in Kinesiology while also competing on the HSU Volleyball team. I later received my teaching credential from HSU and have been teaching in the area since. While attending Humboldt I developed a love for the community and the environment and it is now the place that I call home.  I teach Physical Education and Foundations classes at AR and am also the Varsity Volleyball coach at Fortuna High. I am grateful to be a part of the AR team and look forward to another great year!
