Welcome to the Alaska Cross Content Conference program!  We will not have a print program available.  This program is a planner for you and does not guarantee you a seat in a session.

Please note that things will be changing daily.  Field trips are being finalized. Sessions are still coming in...so stay tuned and watch for changes - the beauty & the beast with technology.

Chilkat Learning and Academic Support Services
I have been teaching science and math in public schools for 22 years. My primary goal has been to encourage curiosity and thoughtful investigations, in the lab and in the world. Place-based content is my favorite theme and "taking it outside" has helped me take advantage of the wonderful setting the Chilkat Valley provides. Before I was a teacher, I was a park ranger in California and Alaska for 20 years, so this has been a natural transition. As I have spent half my teaching years in middle school and half in elementary, I have appreciated the various contexts for increasing engagement in math, particularly for reluctant students. Recently retired, I am interested in taking advantage of the many platforms students have for learning and in sharing my background and enthusiasm with newer teachers.
