Caitlin's Autobiography

My name is Caitlin. My Eskimo name is Kunniak. I’m eight years old. I live in Kaktovik, Alaska. I am the baby sister in my family, Mandy is 11 and Jennifer is 21. Jennifer lives in Minnesota. I also have a younger brother, Marcus. My parents’ names are Maryann and Michael.

I like to play boy games. I like to play with cars and motorcycles with my brother. He likes that. I like to draw on the board. I like to play PS3 games. I don’t like to play Barbies.

I like to have a healthy life. I go to evening rec almost every day. I don’t do drugs and I don’t like people that are bad.

This summer my Uncle Simon and my adada Thomas died while trying to pull in the boat when the water was rough. A wave came up to them and pushed them into the water. We had a sing-along at Kids’ Rec until they found them. It took four days to find them both. It was sad, but I survived and remember the good things about them.

I like myself and I want to be a teacher when I grow up. I might work in a restaurant while I go to college. I want to be a teacher because I can help kids learn to read, do math, and write better.

  1. I'm very sorry to hear about your uncle and your adada. It sounds like you have good memories about them.

    It's exciting to hear you want to be a teacher! Do you like to help your friends in class when they have trouble with assignments?
