Michelle Jenkins is pleased to join the staff at the Governor’s Council for Disabilities and Special Education. She has worked for the State of Alaska for over 4 years, returning to paid employment after devoting almost 15 years as a “stay-at-home” mom raising her 4 children; Emma, Noah, Kala, and Keyn.
Previously, Michelle taught adult education for 12 years, both in Fairbanks and Anchorage, working with a wide variety of students - many referred for training from the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and numerous Native corporations. Michelle loves teaching and encourages the pursuit of lifelong learning.
Michelle moved to Fairbanks from Florida in 1981 to finish her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Having lived many places, Michelle is emphatic that there is no better place on earth than Alaska in the summertime!
