Interior-Aleutians Campus Director
Teisha is a strong advocate regarding higher education opportunities being available in rural Alaska. Additionally, she is passionate about encouraging everyone to consider attaining higher education. She hopes to inspire others with the following memory of her first day as a college student:
"I remember the first time that I went up to the University after graduating from high school, I was ssssoooooo incredibly sure that I wasn't smart enough for college. I told my sister that I wasn't ready and that maybe I wasn't cut out for college. I will never forget what she said to me..."Teisha, your instructors will never ask you to write about something or test you on something they haven't taught you or told you to read and study. College isn't about how smart you are, it's about committing to attend class and disciplining yourself to study and get the homework done." She was so right.
