Buckland, located on the Buckland River about 75 miles southeast of Kotzebue, is home to about 450 residents. Nunatchiaq was built in 2002 and serves about 198 students, about 96% of whom are Alaska Natives. Twelve teachers provide academic and non-academic extra-curricular activities that include basketball and Eskimo dancing.
I am honored and privileged to be a new member of the village of Buckland. I am looking forward to creating a new campus focus that values educational goals and positive futures for all students. I believe that all students can learn and can contribute to the positive climate of our school by participating in meaningful and purposeful instruction and activities. Our campus goals for this year is increased student attendance, engaged learning, and improved student success. It takes the students, teachers and members of the village all working together as a team to encourage and prepare our next generation.
Please feel free to contact me or any member of our staff if we can help you in any way, you will always be welcome!
