Say hello to our Education Strand Students!
Our students have been training at Alaska Pacific University's Kellogg FIELD School in Palmer. They spend part of their day shadowing and supporting instructors and the other part integrating their learning of how to be a leader, while building a community of adventure seeking and nature loving teens. The goal of Kellogg FIELD School is to create holistic learners that pursue interests and solve problems by looking through a wide-angle lens, using scientific inquiry, historical understanding, cultural awareness and linguistic reflection.
While building on basic teaching concepts, building lesson plans, and engaging young people, they have had to opportunity to work towards and earn their paraprofessional license. Which they can take and become a Teacher's Aide OR build upon it if they would like to pursue becoming a fully licensed teacher in their villages.
We are incredibly thankful for our developing partnership with Alaska Pacific University, where Alaska can continue to grow their own teachers! Three of the students were in the Career Technical- Education strand during the winter and returned to be a part of Summer XL! They are on their way to become future educators in Alaska!

They have been such a joy to have and an incredible support, thank you!
The Eagles spent their morning gardening in EweTopia Farms Greenhouse. They transplanted geraniums, added soil to pots, and worked together to plant nasturtium seeds. Their class theme this week was all about flowers - and we couldn't think of a better place to explore the topic! Many many thanks to Carol Symonds! ... See MoreSee Less
