Having enjoyed a fulfilling career in education, Dr. Bitterwolf retired from her profession as a middle level educator and exemplary teacher at the Moscow School District of Idaho. Prior to her departure from the field, she taught students in a variety of subjects, including reading and language arts, ancient history, science, chemistry, and intermediary mathematics. Additionally, Dr. Bitterwolf functioned as an instructor of chemistry for elementary school teachers on at least three separate occasions for the University of Idaho, and in business mathematics for one semester at Anne Arundel Community College.

Before venturing onto her vocational path, Dr. Bitterwolf sought a formal education at the Centenary College of Louisiana, from which she received a Bachelor of Science degree in 1968. Following this accomplishment, she proceeded to the University of Maryland and graduated with a Master’s degree in Mathematics Education. She concluded her education at the University of Idaho, where she received a Doctor of Philosophy in Curriculum and Instruction in 1998. In a career suffused with highlights, Dr. Bitterwolf is most proud to have achieved National Board Certification via the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

Outside of her primary professional efforts, Dr. Bitterwolf attended numerous workshops from 1979 until 1991, including writing, language studies, empathy, mathematics, teenage alcoholism and reading, among many others. Throughout this period, she collaborated closely with a variety of organizations, including the Board of Directors of the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards, Moscow School District, the Idaho Council of International Reading Association, the Tamarack Reading Council, the Idaho Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the Teacher Association of Moscow, Idaho, the Regional and State Boards of the Idaho Education Association, the Anne Arundel County School District, Annapolis, Maryland, and the Teacher Association of Anne Arundel County, to name only a few. Likewise dedicated to civic advocacy, Dr. Bitterwolf also served as a member of the Idaho State Professional Standards Commission, the Friendly Neighbors of Moscow, her local Rotary International Clubs, the American Association of University Women, the American Association of Retired People,  the Order of Eastern Star, Jessamine Chapter No. 135, Iowa City, Iowa, and Potlatch Chapter No. 48.

In accounting for her standout success, Dr. Bitterwolf credits the philosophy with which she came of age, which compelled her to follow her interests, continue learning and give her best to whatever endeavor she took part in to her parents Elizabeth A. Keyser and Duane E. Means and maternal grandparents Lillian M. seemed Mylius and Clarence W. Keyser. She is also proud to have always enshrined their principles of kindness and generosity to others throughout the course of her life. Looking toward the future, Dr. Bitterwolf hopes to continue serving others in her local community as a way of thanking them for the guidance and support others have given her and her family over the years.
