What if you had the chance to experience a place and culture that is quite different from what you're used to - without ever leaving the United States? We are working with a public school district in Western Alaska, where you'll have the opportunity to make a big difference in small coastal Native American communities in the nation's second largest wildlife refuge. You'll live surrounded by Alaska's natural beauty and a lifestyle that's unlike anything found in the Continental United States.

This is a government public school job and you'll be working for the local school district. The pay is above average, with a salary range of USD $51,000-$80,000 and annual pay increases. They will also subsidize your housing and airfare. The schools here are looking to hire U.S. state certified teachers for a number of August openings. Out-of-state certification is accepted for this opening, with a straightforward license transfer process. The district is well-funded and the schools here are really well supplied.

The open postings are for 10 elementary teachers, and 9 middle/high school teachers. Subjects and grade levels vary by school location and include English/Language Arts, Science, Math, CTE, and Special Education.

The one year contract is a great opportunity to make a change, teach in a totally new setting, and save money - and you're also encouraged to stay on longer and make Alaska your home. We have already sent a number of teachers to this school district and recommend it as a great place to teach.

Job Benefits

  • A competitive salary of USD $51,000-$80,000
  • Pay increases gained with each year of seniority
  • The school district will help you find housing and subsidize it
  • A unique chance to help small coastal communities make sure their children receive a quality education without having to leave their home towns for schools in larger regional centres
