  • My Name is Sue West and I teach 4th grade at June Nelson Elementary School in Kotzebue, Alaska.

    I am originally from Detroit Michigan.  I came from Vashon Island in the Seattle, Washington area, but I have lived in Kotzebue for 16 years. I am the mother of 2 children and 3 step-children and I am proud to say that I have 12 grandchildren.

    I graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 1998 with a degree in Elementary Education. I love to sew and cook. I also love to go boating and camping in Kotzebue in the summer. I've been teaching 4th grade for 14 years and I taught 2nd grade for 2 years before this. I absolutely love teaching and I believe that ALL children have the ability and desire to learn.
