Hi Everyone! My name is Deidre Jenson. I am the principal of Deering as well as the special education teacher. I have lived in Alaska for 13 years with my husband and 3 children. I grew up in Canada and moved to Minnesota where I met my husband. My husband is a teacher in Deering as well. We lived briefly in Wainwright, then Soldotna, and spent most of our time in Southeast Alaska. We decided to return to Northern Alaska, but ventured westward, as we heard wonderful things about the community and students of Deering. Deering has become our home. It is a new year and are looking forward to exciting learning from the Northern Lights students. Northern Lights, it's time to SHINE!
