My Students

Our students live on an island in Southeast Alaska. They are resilient and independent. Most of them have jobs in the summer, many of them on a fishing boat or working to support the fishing industry.

Some of the families gather and put up food in the summer, like salmon, sea asparagus, and berries.

We have a very rich culture here and many of our students are Tlingit or Haida. We are proud of our students and this island community.

My Project

We have been working to develop a culinary arts program for our students. We have been building up the program but it is in need of some essential things. Unfortunately, the refrigerator isn't keeping things cold anymore and we want to continue to be able to offer culinary arts. We also want to teach our students how to put up food, like jam and salmon. Many of them need these essential life skills and others will be our future chefs! We have built this course into a new schedule so students can work in two-hour​ blocks. We also hope to build a greenhouse to supplement the food for the program.
