Bev Hunter-Gillaspie is honored to serve as the principal of Barrow High School.  Her philosophy of building relationships with those she serves is a priority for she believes it important for students, parents, staff, and community members to  BELIEVE Barrow High School to be THEIR school.

Her experience in teaching students from middle school through post-secondary, and serving as a principal at both the elementary and high school levels, provides her with an understanding of the varying personal as well as academic developmental needs of her students.

Prior to relocating from Oregon to Alaska, 10 years were spent teaching business and computer education. However, for the past 20+ years, Bev and her husband have dedicated their professional lives to serving the communities of Kotzebue, Nikiski, Homer, and Sitka.  They are both pleased to be returning to the Arctic for their second tour and are truly at home in Barrow
