Thank you ATP !!

This is the new version of the Alaska Teacher Placement (ATP) forum for teachers, education majors, and school administrators to discuss working and living in the state of Alaska. Those considering an Alaskan job, or considering a new Alaskan education job ask questions, and those with information and/or opinions provide answers. Although many users are teacher or principal candidates from the Lower 48, a large number of current and former school district HR and school administrators subscribe.

Moderators: Johncn, Betty Walters, Toni McFadden, Damon Hargraves

Thank you ATP !!

Congratulations! That's what the ATP job fairs, and this forum itself are all about: helping candidates find districts with the right jobs for them, and vice versa!

Feel free to use the ATP Forum as you prepare for your move. Lots of folks here will be happy to pitch in with tips and ideas from their own experiences.

I'd like to say two things. First of all, congratulations to Jessica on her new job. Secondly, I'd also like to say thanks to ATP and everyone who has been so helpful. I too signed on with a district this morning and couldn't have done it without all the help from here.

Jessica,

You will have a great time in your new experience in Alaska. YKSD sites are all out of Fairbanks and FAI (major airport designation) will be the place for your district new teacher in-service in August. It will be a great opportunity to set up your banking, various general needs accounts with Sam's Club, Fred Meyers, Safeway, etc for food, household items, doctor, dental or pharmacy needs, etc. You will also have many businesses with outdoor clothing and gear that will be necessary for winter if you are coming from a much warmer climate. Importantly, the time in Fairbanks with district staff and returning teachers will be beneficial with information on curriculum and instruction, community history and culture, school activities, etc.

Have a great time preparing for your move.
