My name is Kevin Klott and I teach 7th grade language arts at Goldenview Middle School in Anchorage, Alaska. I teach two sections of language arts and two electives. One elective is called video announcements (communications) and the other is video productions. This is my fourth year teaching at Goldenview, but sixth overall. I spent a year teaching in Minneapolis and two years teaching English as a foreign language in rural Costa Rica as a Peace Corps volunteer. Before I became a teacher, I worked as a sports writer at the Anchorage Daily News for nearly seven years, covering anything from high school sports to sled dog racing. I earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Mich. (my hometown), and a Masters of Arts in Teaching at the University of Alaska Southeast.
When I’m not working, I enjoy going cross-country skiing, camping, hiking, running and biking with my wife and son. And when I want to just get away from it all, fly fishing is what I do best.
I entered the ONID program for professional as well as personal growth. My primary goal of this program is to do a better job integrating technology into my classroom. My secondary goal is to some day teach online English courses to students in Anchorage and rural Alaska.
