My name is Annette McDonough. I grew up in Phoenix, AZ. I have a BS in Physics and Math from University of Wyoming. I am working on my Med in Secondary Education. I just moved to St. Mary’s, AK in August. I am currently working as the 8-12 math, physics, and home economics teacher. I am the Student Government representative. So I stay pretty busy. This is my first year teaching, before this I was a software engineer for Northrop Grumman working in Oklahoma, and California. My husband works on the Slope so he is home three weeks at a time, then gone for three weeks. He grew up in Kenai so he has been trying to convince me to move here for the past 7 years. We have two kids, Marguerite (Meg) who just turned 7 and Kellen who is 5.5. They are in kindergarten and 1st grade. We love Alaska and can’t imagine living anywhere else!
