get to know: Peter from Peter’s Publisher and Teaching in Lingít Aaní

tongass
My grandparents came to Ketchikan, Alaska in the 1950s. My grandpa worked at the pulp mill there, and my grandma later became mayor. My father grew up in Ketchikan, and I’ve lived there since I was three years old—so perhaps it goes without saying that I’m an Alaskan, and I love my hometown dearly.I first began blogging in high school, using it as an outlet for thoughts about school, politics, history, and all sorts of other topics. I still continue the blog I started back then—Peter’s Publisher—though I hope my writing and ideas have matured at least a little in five years. One subject I write about more frequently now is indigenous issues, and I feel I know a great deal more about Alaska after writing a thesis on the nineteenth century history of the Tlingit people.

By my senior year of college in Washington, D.C., I knew I wanted to return home and become a history teacher. Now I’m following that dream by pursuing a master’s with the University of Alaska Southeast, and I’ll be student teaching at my old high school in Ketchikan this year. I’ve started a new blog called Teaching in Lingít Aaní in order to record these experiences, and I’m incredibly excited to start a new chapter in my life back in Alaska.

I’d love to get to know the other bloggers and readers who are part of the Alaska Blog Network, so drop me a line anytime! Thanks!
