After my visit to Tanana Middle School, the home of the
Eagles!, I'm back on the road again to Healy, Alaska. Healy is home to the Usibelli Coal Mine and very near Denali National Park.
The students at Tanana Middle were energetic and friendly and many of them confident enough to share their writing in front of their peers. That takes courage that many adults never muster. Librarian, Tana Martin, Alaskan born but raised in Georgia, was a great organizer and support during the long day when I met all the Language Arts classes. I had forgotten how much work teaching all day really is.
More Later, time to make camp and settle in for the night.
And then this . . . .
