Sorry for not posting in such a long time! Many things have happened though! My students made bets on when the snow would melt from an unplowed spot and it has happened!! The leaves on the trees are as big as squirrels’ ears, and if I were in the south that would mean that I was allowed to wear shorts and dresses by my mother, but not in Alaska where the “high” is 45 degrees. The sun stays up until 11:15 pm and rises again at about 5am. The kids are working well getting things tied up for the end of the year. I am packing up my apartment and mailing back things to Old Virginia! I survived Cultural Heritage Week. Which, for students, translates to a week of native art and history instruction with about 100 students from all over. But for teachers translates to a week I would compare to hazing in greek organizations, we did all the grunt work. Don’t get me wrong it was a delightful week; where I got to see old friends, meet new ones, and see my students happier than I have seen them in ages. There was a school dance with a live band and you better believe I danced an embarrassing amount for my students. So sorry or the delay but here are some photos to catch me up!
