Duchene, Aletha

Hey there! My name is Aletha Duchene and I am the current third grade teacher! Third grade is one of my favorite levels to teach as students shift from learning how to read and begin reading to learn. I am excited to return to Kivalina for another school year and I can't wait to see what this one has in store for our class!


I'm originally from Minnesota and have spent time teaching in Washington DC, Minnesota, and Brazil, before coming to Alaska. I enjoy outdoor activities and learning about new cultures through exploring new places. When the weather takes a turn for the extra cold or stormy, I'm equally as content curling up in a blanket and reading or doing puzzles.
