My Students

Our school is located in a remote area of Alaska that is full of rolling hills, rivers, and lakes, and an abundance of wildlife from birds, moose, caribou, bears, and more. The many families of our students live on the abundance of wildlife for their survival. Our town of Tok is the first settlement that travelers reach when traveling the Alcan Highway after leaving Canada.

My students live in a small community with about 1000 people living year-round within the immediate area.

We experience some of the coldest weather in the state. Students love to be outside in the snow, sledding, mushing dogs, or just going for walks. Students have a lot of time to spend indoors as well as reading and playing games with family and friends. Families teach their children how to safely enjoy the outdoors all year long. So many students love to read on the cold, winter nights.

My Project

Our school has been having elective classes for the elementary students which we call PODS. These classes focus on science, math, technolgy, arts, and regional culture. My next POD will be arts and crafts. We have done the normal school crafts.

My students need a variety of art kits to experience other art formats like: stencling, wood crafts, sand art, plaster, acrylic painting, chimes, stain glass, and several other hands on projects.

Many of the students never get the opportunity to try crafts beyond the normal class room art materials of construction paper and glue. This project will help to broaden their experiences.
