Mr. Chad Finch
I was born and raised in Glennallen, Alaska.
I graduated from Glennallen High School.
Went to college in Texas to study Mechanical Engineering.
While I enjoyed engineering, I felt the calling to become a teacher.
I obtained my degree in Mathematics Education after transferring to Minnesota State University Moorhead.
I returned to Alaska and got hired at CTHS to teach mathematics and now engineering.
