Winona Ballot

My name is Winona Ballot. I am originally from Buckland. My parents are June and Percy Ballot Sr. I have worked in Deering as a sped aide and now I am the bilingual instructor. I worked in Kotzebue at an immersion school called Nikaitchuat Ilisagviat, where they only teach Iñupiaq to students. So, that is where I learned most of the language that I know. I love my job because these kids are learning to speak and write our language and they love it. I'm so proud of how much they have learned and are still learning. Have a great school year everyone!
