Ms. Katrina Matumeak
Paġlagivsi/Welcome to my class website. I am excited to be back in Utqiaġvik serving the students here at Ipalook. Atiġa/my name is Katrina Matumeak. This is my 5th year of teaching. I began teaching here at Ipalook, first as an ECE teacher and then as a 3rd grade teacher. We left for two years, where I continued to teach in Montana. After the adoption of our youngest child was finalized, we packed the family back up and came home to Alaska. I taught in Tikigaq/Point Hope last year as a middle school teacher, and now this year I come to you as a 4th grade teacher. While in Montana and then at Tikigaq, I had the priviledge to serve as the Girls' Middle School Basketball Coach.
What an amazing journey we are about to embark upon together. You will not believe how much your child will grow this year. I have so much planned, and I can’t wait to get to know you and your family.
A Little About Me:
My husband, Paul Matumeak, and I just celebrated 17 years of marriage this summer. We have four beautiful children: Alexis, Evan, Gracie, and Jeremy. We are very family orientated, and enjoy quality time with the kids.
