My name is Alex Van Wyhe and this is my fourth year in Fairbanks at UAF. Last December I completed my BA in English with a minor in History and I am currently student-teaching at West Valley High School.
I grew up on a farm in Kenny Lake, AK, a small town about 300 miles south of Fairbanks and continue to spend summers there in my cabin (I have a beautiful view of the Wrangell mountains that makes it hard to leave). In my free time I try to be outside as much as possible. I enjoy canoeing and other water sports for pleasure as well as for work – in the summers I work for the BLM doing river and trail monitoring along with working on the family farm and working my garden.
Looking forward to class and getting to know you all!
