Degrees and Certifications:

Madrigal Brown

Iñupiaqsiñaga Qavviaq. Taniksiñaga Madrigal.  I have been teaching fourth grade at Ipalook for two years.  Before teaching at Ipalook, I taught at Trapper School, which still holds a very special place in my heart, and before that, I taught in Glennallen and Fort Yukon. 

I have a Master's degree in Elementary Teaching, I'm a reading specialist and an intervention specialist, and I have a few other minor certifications, too.  I have seen students make incredible gains in the course of only a year when they take responsibility for their learning and work hard to meet their goals.  My goal is to keep them motivated and make them owners of their education.

  • In my spare time, I like to try new recipes, I love to read, I like to do things with my kids, and I like to spend time at work.  I'm kind of nerd when it comes to teaching.  I also love learning new things.  Thanks to my amazing co-worker, Sikkattuaq, my newest hobby is sewing.

    I have three children, Asiaq, Qavvik, and Kigugiyakii.  Each one of them is unique and precious to me, just like my students.  I am also a foster mom, so I get to have bonus kids sometimes.  It's always hard to let them go, but I'm so lucky to spend time with them.
    Here are some pictures of my family, because I couldn't just pick ONE!
  • Aapaga Mike. Aakaga Debbie. Vorcet kuayaagaruηa. They were both teachers, but my dad is retired now. 
    Malguk nukaaluqtuηa, taniksiñiktik Jonathan and Brian.  My brothers are both married (to teachers!) and I have three nieces and two nephews.  We only see each other once a year, but I love my family.
    We ALMOST stuck with a color scheme.
