Assistant Principal, Chief Ivan Blunka School
New Stuyahok, AK
Meghan Redmond has been a school administrator for a total of eight years, serving the last three as the assistant principal of Chief Ivan Blunka School in Alaska. Throughout her time at Chief Ivan, Redmond has worked tirelessly to build global-mindedness, equity, and positive school culture among her students and staff. By utilizing the local language and traditional values of the Yup’ik Eskimo Alaska Native population—which makes up nearly 100 percent of her community—Redmond helps inform instruction and decision-making to provide a culturally relevant education. As an administrator in a rural school district, she also recognizes the value in exposing her students to as many college and career opportunities as possible to ensure each student has equal access to the future of their choice, regardless of where they are from.
