Dawn Hendrickson, M.A.T, Ph.D. Prospectus, Lead Teacher

I have two grown sons and 2 grandsons and am married to Terry (Big Bear) for 6 years. My educational career began in New Mexico in 2004, then continued in Delaware in 2009, and finally to Alaska in 2015. I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education in 2004,, Masters of Arts in Teaching in 2008, and am currently working on a Ph.D in Educational Leadership, while working on my principal certification at the same time. I have been with BSSD since August 2015 and have worked all those years as a Special Education teacher and a Regular Education Teacher. The 1st year I taught a mixed grade level class (4th and 5th grades). The next 3+ years I have been teaching grades 6th-12th. My students (both past and present) are the reason I teach.

Bilingual Teacher

Most of my life I wanted to learn more about my native way of life- something I was born with. My ancestors instilled this in me and I want to pursue this dream till I can fluently achieve whatever my ancestors did. I also love to do other cultural activities with subsistence.
