Hello! Generally, I am on tour all year, and spend the summer and fall in Alaska before heading south to tour for the winter. As far as the regular school season is concerned, I am usually available in September and October, and possibly in November. Though I hope to eventually extend my stay in Alaska through December. Each year is different though, depending on how the rest of my tour schedule shapes up. This page is dedicated to giving you the most accurate information I can on each year's schedule.
September 19th through November.
This year I'm on a limited schedule because I'm flying up and won't have my van. I won't have my audio and video production gear, though I can teach that program using the school's gear or with no gear. I can get a loaner vehicle, but I am still limited by not having my own vehicle I will have my van back in Alaska next year.
As for availability, I am on my regular schedule, coming out of the bush in mid-September and being available for school shows from then on untill I leave. I am scheduled to leave in mid-October and will do volunteer shows till then. For AIS people I can change my flight and extend my stay through November. I will still be in the Pacific Northwest through December, and could possibly fly up for an AIS program.
A point I wish to make is while I have qualified for the Alaska AIS program, I am still happy to vounteer when possible or just for transportation and a place to stay for remote locations. My philosophy remains the same, that teaching is more important than trying to make money doing it, and while my personal resources are limited, I am always willing to try and work something out to make it happen, either through official programs or through unofficial arrangements. I remain dedicated to serving the greater community, and while getting funded through AIS would certainly help my over-all budget, even allow me to afford to fly up when I'm on tour out of state just to teach. But it is certainly not nescessary.
