My name is Chris Ballek. I just graduated with a BS in General Science from UAF. I have lived in Alaska my entire life. I was born in Fairbanks and raised in North Pole Alaska. North Pole is a small town about 20 minutes outside of Fairbanks. I really enjoy science as a whole, even though my favorite disciplines are Biology and Geology. I just entered the Graduate program to get a Masters degree in Teaching through the school of Education, with a focus on Earth and Space science. I plan on getting my Praxis II done for nearly every branch of science, but I want to teach Biology and Geology. I enjoy working with kids and am looking forward to my time as a teacher.
