Goodbye and Good Luck!

Four staff members are saying, "Goodbye," to Marshall School. They all have plans for the future and we wish them luck in whatever they do.

Time for a Change

"I have spent a great deal of time trying to figure out my plans for next year. I have lived and worked in Marshall for six years, the longest I have ever worked in any one place. I felt that I needed to make a change and that this was the year to do it, so I resigned from the Lower Yukon School District and accepted a position with Northwest Arctic Borough Schools. I will be going to the village of Buckland which is near Kotzebue Sound. In Buckland I will be the special education teacher for grades seven through twelve. I am very excited about my new position, but will miss the staff and students of Marshall very much."

Fairfield, Here I Come

"After teaching in Marshall for a couple of years, I have decided to return to school to further my education. In the Fall, I am going to attend Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut to pursue my Master of Science in Information Technology. I chose to go to SHU because it is a Catholic school, and it has a great technology program. I have always been interested in computers and technology so I have set my mind to go for what I want. As for plans after that, they are not set in stone, but I eventually plan to get my doctorate on the west coast, most likely at the U. of Washington in Seattle."

Flora Evan
Life After Death

"There is indeed life after death.

Among my many plans are to do a canoe trip in June down the Noatak River in the Brooks Range, plus a hike with Jennifer in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in July. Then I'll start building a maqi with Steven, then a studio-garage, and finally a little cabin on my land next to Denali National Park. As usual, I will continue writing my books and carving my little animals, and gardening with Jen. I'll involve myself more directly in the local environmental and birding groups I belong to in Fairbanks, and in the Fall I'll take some courses at the University of Alaska, and learn how to dog mush with a friend in Eagle. I'll visit my mother when she's in Arizona in the Spring, travel to Australia with Jen the following summer, then, the following year, revisit friends in South America. Every summer I plan to float at least one more wilderness river in Alaska with friends or family members.

It will truly be a pleasure to get up in the morning."

...a Vacation!

"I have been in education 25 years and my biggest goal is to retire in three years and go home and actually live with my wife. I have loved the time I have spent in Alaska, and have met people I will never forget. My future looks very good to me.

My plans for the summer include building a rock garden for my wife, then seeing my daughter get married in June. She is an Army helicopter pilot and she is marrying another pilot. They are both in advanced flight training and will live at Ft. Rucker, Alabama, while they continue training. Hopefully, after the wedding, my wife and I can take a vacation."
