   Mr. John C. Deal 

Since 2014, I have been involved with Science Olympiad and FIRST Robotics at the Elementary, Middle and High School Level; specifically working with Butte, Academy Charter and Career Tech. I have developed a close working relationship with many teachers and principals. Close to Career Tech High School, I have worked with Tim Lundt and Chad Finch. Last year I received an MSEA Champion for Children's Award. I am currently a co-coach of the CTHS Robotics Club. I have a daughter attending CTHS and all of my FLL Students from Academy Charter School are attending CTHS. Since 2012, I have coached and served on the board of the Palmer Soccer Club. 

  Mr. Chad Finch

I was born and raised in Glennallen, Alaska and enjoyed growing up in the great outdoors.  After graduating from Glennallen High School, I headed to college in Texas to study Mechanical Engineering and play basketball and baseball.  While I enjoyed engineering, I felt the calling to become a teacher.


I obtained my degree in Mathematics Education after transferring to a college more known for its teaching program, Minnesota State University Moorhead.  Then I returned to Alaska and got hired at CTHS to teach mathematics and now engineering! 

What fun!
