Northern Life

In case you didn't really understand how far north I live, I thought I'd show you some of the everyday images of my life.

Here's a common way for students to get to school.

This is one of my students shovelling the snow off my deck - for the 3rd time in two weeks.

Valerie is doing a traditional Native craft with a new twist - beading graduation keepsakes.

Megan is embroidering a block for this year's school community quilt during her lunch break.

Yeah, it's a different life but they're still kids and I'm still their teacher. It's a relationship that holds a lot of meaning for all of us no matter where we live.

Hope you're all staying warm! M
