My name is Trisha Kaer. I have lived in Alaska for 3 and a half years. My husband is in the united States Army which is how we ended up in Fairbanks. He is deployed right now in Afghanistan, but I have two wonderful kids that are helping me hold down the fort. Ian is 11 and is in the 6th grade and Alexis is 9 and in the 4th grade. We will be leaving Alaska next summer to hopefully move on to Germany for three years. I am currently working on my Master’s of Education. I have an undergrad in biology. I am looking forward to this class and refreshing myself with Earth Science.
