Mr. Steve Cunningham
I have been in Alaska for 13 years now and have taught on the Kenai Peninsula in Soldotna, in Barrow, Glennallen area (Kenny Lake) and now in Kobuk.
I graduated from University of Idaho (BS SecEd Social Studies) and UAA for graduate certification in Special Education.
I am also a US Navy veteran having served between 1984-1989 onboard a ship.
I love the outdoors and subsistence lifestyle. I also love the Inupiat Culture and language and I always find ways to educate my students about their own culture and language.
I also love traveling and spend the summers at my home in the Philippines.
I am married to Christy, we just had our first child David Thompson Cunningham who was born in May 2020.
This is my fourth year in Kobuk, and I consider it our home, I am happy teaching in the NW Arctic of Alaska.
