Kelly Shrein knew from a young age she wanted to be a teacher. She not only followed in the footsteps of her mother, a career teacher in Anchorage, but with just ten years under her belt Kelly became the 2021 ‘Alaska Teacher of the Year’! It’s been an exciting and enlightening year for the wife and mother of three. For Kelly, teaching is not just a profession, it’s a passion and it’s all about love and kindness.
