Our school is located in North West Alaska, an hour and a half plane ride from the nearest major city. We are a Title I school with students from all walks of life learning together.
We all learn from each other with our different family traditions.
We live a subsistence life here. Each season keeps us busy with supplying for our families. We fish in all seasons, pick different berries, hunt different wild game, pick greens, crabbing, and many other activities.
In my classroom, I have the students seated in groups of four. In order to do this, I have two tables pushed together to make enough room for the four students and their books or papers. In the middle of the two tables there's a work mat, pencil box, whiteboards, and markers. If the tables get pushed apart, everything falls to the floor. If we can get the square tables, we will stay organized all the time. It will also be easier to move our tables, when and if we need to, without having the issues of losing all our supplies to the floor.
