Out There

alaska teacher blogs

Posted in Uncategorized by Pete on September 4, 2012

Stumbled on a couple of good teacher blogs and wanted to pass them along.  This post has some good advice for those considering teaching in bush Alaska.  I’ve met this teacher in Chevak during my travels as an SLP.  The blog is worth exploring beyond this one post.

Here is a humorous but oh so true list of “You know you’re a teacher in the bush Alaska when…”  I especially like #3, which I’ve seen happen a few times, like when I found a giant (seriously, ginormous) swan hanging by the neck outside our friend Deanna’s door.

And here is an old blog that is apparently no longer being updated, but the photos are great and make me want to visit the area around the tiny village of Perryville.

    The Perryville blog was written by the woman who was eaten by wolves when she was out running in the village- that’s why it’s not updated any more : (

    These are great. I’m interested in teaching in Alaska and I love reading blogs about it. The last blog you list is of that teacher who was literally killed by wolves. It’s sad to read her blogs!
