Teaching at the Top of the World

Author(s): Marilyn Forrester

When Marilyn read about the money everyone was making in Alaska, she decided to head North.

In January of 1977, she arrived in Anchorage with a plan to be a welder on the pipeline, become wealthy, and return home. With her new English degree, traumatic divorce, return ticket, and $200 in her pocket, Marilyn was ready for adventure. This book tells of her life in Alaska for the past thirty years.

She worked on the trans-Alaska oil pipeline, at the Naval Arctic Research Lab in Barrow and taught in Alaska Bush villages. Her many experiences include being lost in a whiteout in Kotzebue while trying to walk home from school; staying at a Prudhoe Bay hotel and having to shower without soap and drying with Kleenex as she tried to get to the Alaska Teacher Job Fair; golfing in the Nome Bering Sea Tournament and teaching in Kachetaq, Barrow, Nondalton, Crooked Creek, Kotzebue, Nuiqsut, and other communities.

From her teacher-housing disasters to her love of children, the book relates her experiences.
