Hi everyone, my name is Jil Callaghan and I’m a 6th grade science teacher at Houck Middle School. I’ll be posting content for my students – who will be taught by Ms. Wright until my return in October – intermittently throughout the trip about the science done onboard. I’m looking forward to teaching from such a unique place!
Our flight from Anchorage to Kotzebue, Alaska.
Day 1 at the ship! Finally here!
Our sleeping quarters
Found a place to set up my hammock!
Yes, there’s even a BBQ on the ship! We had grilled Alaskan halibut for dinner last night and it was delicious.
