There are places on this planet that we all must try and visit in our lifetime. I'd place Alaska at the top of my list, to experience the scale of wilderness that is accessible there.
In the second of our Guest Speaker Series, 1st grade ISD teacher Noah Balazs joined us to share his experience of working for a summer in the remote village Klakwan, Alaska.
Klakwan is located on the banks of the Chilkat River some 20 miles north of Haines along the Haines Highway. The village is home to about 140 residents traditionally of Tlingit ancestry.
Many thanks to Noah for sharing his rich experience.
