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 substitute information.

ATP's New Name 

To better serve our candidates and school districts, Alaska Teacher Placement is transitioning to Alaska Teachers and Personnel.  Our new name better 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 hosts 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, accounting 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 Calls!

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 temporary duty.

If you are interested in being considered, this form gets you set up and "on the list"!  Questions? Contact Toni at

ATP Substitute List Registration - Flexible? This supplements your ATP Applitrack File!

Don't forget to make sure your ATP Applitrack is active and updated on our site, as ATP wants districts to be able to quickly reference your resume and supporting documentation.  Districts will contact Substitute List candidates directly.

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 and working here.  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.
