After 37 years in the Anchorage School District, Carol Comeau is retiring. She started her career in the district as a teacher’s aide, became a teacher in Anchorage and eventually superintendent. That’s a position she’s held for more than a decade. Comeau is moving to Bellingham to spend more time with her kids and grandkids.
She says she started teaching in Oregon in 1963 but got pregnant right away, which meant she had to quit.
United Way of Alaska is holding a retirement celebration for Comeau and a fundraiser for the effort to increase graduation rates in the city to 90% by 2020 tonight at the Denaina Convention and Civic Center from 6-9 p.m.
