Kathryn Self, Principal

Hello Everyone!

My name is Kathryn Self. I am the Principal for Aqqaluk Noorvik School. This is my fifth year in Alaska and in the Northwest Arctic Borough. I am married, have five children, and thirteen grandchildren. My family has always wanted to come to Alaska and in 2016  my husband and I made the move, along with my oldest son. I began my career as a Special Education teacher then transferred to Regular Education 6th grade Math, Science, and Social Studies. In my 10th year, I became a school counselor and behaviorist. During this part of my career, I began working in administration. I came to Alaska as a Special Education Teacher/Counselor and currently am in Administration. My family really enjoys the outdoor adventures in Alaska. This school year is structually different than the traditional setting of past years. We have had a successful beginning to the year and look for the second half of the school year to be even more successful.  We are looking forward to an enjoyable time in 2021. Community organizations, community elders, and community members and/or parents are invited to come by and visit the school with scheduled appointment. I am always available for appointments.
