Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Caroline Proulx, AKA Ms. Caroline, AKA Your Friendly Neighborhood College and Career Guide!
I am here to help students explore their postsecondary options (whatever they want to do after high school), whether that's vocational training, college, apprenticeships, military, or finding a job. I assist students in exploring their options, completing applications, securing financial aid or funding for their education, and tying up all those loose ends before graduation. I work individually with seniors and do classroom presentations to younger grades. In my spare time, I also help out with the dual credit classes, organize the I Know I Can program with 2nd graders, organize the Kids2College program with 6th graders, attend local postsecondary worgroup meetings, and network with postsecondary institutions across the state. I serve students at both Nome Public Schools and the Bering Strait School District.
I was born in Maine, grew up in Kansas, went to college at Saint Mary's College in Indiana, and have lived in Alaska since graduating college. I have been in Nome as the College and Career Guide for over 3 years now.
If you have any questions or want to set up an appointment, I love talking to students/parents/community members!
