My name is Brianne Kimberlin and I am 24 years old, graduated with a Bachelors in History and a minor in English last May from UAF, and am currently getting my Masters in Secondary Education through Distance Ed. here at UAF. I recently moved down here to Valdez, Alaska from Fairbanks, Alaska with my husband and am currently interning at the high school in the History and English content areas. I grew up in an Alutiiq village on Kodiak Island called Old Harbor and my love for rural communities began there. I moved into the city of Kodiak for my last three years of high school where I became involved with many sports and my love for coaching also began. I went to college at UAA for four years after high school, then moved my life to Fairbanks and transferred to UAF. Now that I am moved to Valdez I am so happy to be living on the ocean again. I plan on working in this community or near rural communities in my teaching career, as well as coach either Volleyball or Cross Country running, and feel fortunate that I am given the opportunity to currently volunteer with the Varsity Volleyball team here.
