Teacher Jobs in Alaska

The state of Alaska's average starting wage for teachers is $44,166, partially to compensate for the unique geographical elements that teachers may have to endure. On a national level, there is much demand for teachers with all sorts of credentials at all levels - in Alaska, however emphasis is placed on bicultural sensitivity and bilingualism. Having credentials in languages or STEM subjects may entitle candidates to apply for teacher's loan forgiveness. Key areas of need in the state are Anchorage, Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District, and Fairbanks North Star Borough School District.
