Spring 2023 Educator Expo News!
As the 2023 calendar year approaches, the 2023-24 school
year recruiting cycle has now begun for some forward-looking
districts. ATP has announced that the annual Spring Educator
Expo job fair will be held at the Hotel Captain Cook in
Anchorage, Alaska once again in February. In fact, we have a
new grant to give a $500 travel stipend to the first 10
candidates who sign a letter of intent or contract at the
Anchorage Job Fair! Winners must attend the Anchorage
Educator Expo on February 24 in order to qualify!
In addition, ATP has announced the dates and opened registration for their April Virtual Job Fair.
Of course, as is common around Christmas Break, there are both short-term and long-term
substitute positions available as well for the current
2022-23 school year. See the article below on this page for

ATP's New Name
To better serve our candidates and
districts, Alaska Teacher Placement is transitioning to Alaska
and Personnel. Our new
describes services that ATP provides, and removes
misunderstandings about the
word “Placement”. This does not, however,
change any of our core services. As always, ATP
the online application and job bank, where candidates
apply for jobs and
districts reach out to candidates directly.
ATP does not place teachers into classrooms, rather
it functions as the facilitator
between candidates and districts. In
addition to teachers and administrative positions, ATP’s
online job bank hosts
all school related jobs, such as human resources, business
office and facilities management.
Updating “Placement” to Personnel” is simply a more
accurate description of the
work ATP does for job candidates and school districts.
We continue to be the foremost resource for
candidates seeking employment in Alaska’s schools.
And, we are still "ATP".
Ever Thought About Substitute
Teaching in Alaska? - Adventure
If you are a retired teacher, between teaching jobs, or just
finishing your teacher certification program, and are flexible
with your plans, Alaska now keeps a list of substitute
teachers available on short notice for the 2022-23 school year
and beyond. Unexpected openings happen every school year
due to teacher illnesses, pregnancies, family emergencies and
so on. ATP tries to help by keeping a ready list of
substitutes separate from the normal Applitrack job bank.
Some positions are Short-term Substitute (STS) positions for
just a few weeks, while others are Long-term Substitute (LTS)
positions that might be a month or a semester in length. This
is not only a great way to keep your teaching skills sharp, or
practice newly acquired skills, but it's also a great way to
see some of the most unique villages left in North America
while getting paid, and making yourself known to district
leadership staff. Substitutes often earn the support of a
thankful school district, and get called back regularly for

Student Teaching in Alaska? -
The Experience of a Lifetime!
If you are finishing your pre-service teacher preparation or
certification program, but still have to complete your
internship, practice teaching or student teaching, you may
want to consider doing so in Alaska.
You can use the ATP website to learn about the very
different regions of Alaska
, and about living
. Alaska rural school districts
are especially interested in hosting student teachers in their
schools, and are willing to work with your university to
collaborate on innovate supervision arrangements. In
fact, many districts offer housing assistance, travel
arrangements from your location to their communities, and
sometimes even a small cost of living stipend.
