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.
