Hello Everyone,My name is Russell Shurtleff. Sorry for my delayed introduction but I have been stuck in Prudhoe Bay for the last two weeks at work and I was having some internet issues. I am working towards my masters at UAF in teaching. I currently have a bachelors degree in biology and very little teaching experience. I substitute taught a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I then got a job working in the oil field as a pipe fitter, but my love of teaching and learning has gotten the better of me and I am back in college. When I substitute taught I was lucky enough to score a long term position as a biology and earth science teacher and I have decided that I would like to become highly qualified in both subjects. Looking forward to this class and learning some techniques to use in my future profession.
