Hi Everyone! My name is Stephanie Knaebel, and I am currently living in Eagle, Alaska. Eagle has a population of around 130 people, and the school here is K=12 with two classrooms (K-5 and 6-12). I am working in the upper classroom as a student teacher. I am taking this class as a Licensure/M.Ed. student at UAF, and I hope to graduate in May with everything completed. I grew up in Georgia, but I love everything that Alaska has to offer. I have several new hobbies, including cross country skiing, fur sewing, and learning to use snow shoes.
I am excited about the education program at UAF, and I think having a rural/bush placement will help me have a better understanding of the uniqueness of education in Alaska.
