More Description

About the Authors: Gladys Dart devoted the major part of her career to rural education in Interior Alaska as a teacher, administrator, and regional school board member. In retirement, she continues her strong support of education as a community member. She was raised as a child of the Great Depression in Minnesota and served her country working in a war plant and serving in the military. After the war, she attended the University of Alaska in Fairbanks. She graduated from Chico State in California. She later received her M.ED. Degree from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. As a 61 year resident of Alaska, she lives in retirement as a 53 year resident on her Hot Springs property, in Manley Hot Springs. Since the loss of her husband Chuck, daughter Diane, and son-in-law, her life is centered on her two sons, John and Jim, her daughter-in-law, Liza, and her two miracle grandchildren, Cori and Ilona. Alfred Wright was born in the summer of 1993 and raised in Manley Hot Springs, Alaska. He has attended the Gladys Dart School all his life. He grew up in a rural subsistence lifestyle. With his parents and older brother, he has had many adventures learning to hunt, fish, and trap. Alfred has always had an interest in reading and mathematics. These are shown by his achievements in both categories; reading the "The Sorcerer's Stone" in the first grade, competing at state level Battle of the Books for many years, and being the first Alaskan student to compete at the State level Math Counts competition three years in a row. Alfred plans to pursue a career in the medical field after graduating from the Gladys Dart School.
