    All about Alaska (customs, traditions, weather, etc). We have great traditions here for Iditarod, we have unique daylight throughout the year, Northern Lights, and we recently changed Columbus day to Indigenous People's Day. I am available on most Fridays, and some other days of the week.

My Story

My name is Michelle Carton and I am a Global Education Ambassador from Anchorage, Alaska. I work directly with K-6 students, as a librarian and connect students to leaders, classrooms, conservationists, and global citizens all over the world. I also like to connect with classrooms to teach them about Alaska, taught by me and sometimes by my students as well (pending time zones of course). I aim to be an Microsoft Innovative Educator and am building capacity to take my organization, Global Education Alaska (globaleducationak.org) to the next level. We have lots of global projects that we create and embark on and would love schools around the world to join us!

My Interests
SDG's, Music/Theatre, Conservation, Innovative Education, books!
