Kwigillingok teacher Jacob Deskins recently released his new book, A Trip on the Tundra Explorer: An Alaskan Adventure Story.
The story is about a 4th grade student meeting his teacher for the first time. Sean, the 4th grade student, is nervous because he is not the greatest student. Little does he know his teacher Mr. Simmons is nervous too.
Sean’s grandmother organizes a trip to meet Mr. Simmons. They go on this trip into the tundra with Sean’s Amau, and experience all the good, the bad, and the muddy the tundra has to offer. Will their adventure into the Alaskan tundra help them build their confidence, or will it end in disaster?
Author Jacob Deskins is from Columbus, Ohio. He moved to Kwigillingok, Alaska in July 2020.
“I moved here to teach at the school in the village. I am the K-1 ELA and Math teacher here, and I absolutely love it,” said Deskins on his website.
A Trip on the Tundra Explorer: An Alaskan Adventure Story is available online at Barnes and Noble and Booktopia.
