    a district and job that meet your specific expectations and skills Help Us Help You ATP has been compared to a matchmaker for job candidates and school districts It s a good analogy and we actually studied effective on line dating systems in designing this website We want to find everyone their own Paris on the Kuskokwim the link goes to Michael Faubion s humorous collection of songs about life in Bethel We recommend it The title song is a free MP3 download and it is on my iPod More important is the message hidden in the lyrics and song clips on his site finding a place that fits is a critical and personal thing I have many friends who wouldn t live anywhere else in Alaska but Bethel or Kotzebue Sand Point Nome or White Mountain These are teachers and administrators who like working and living where they are just fine and have adjusted perfectly With this in mind the ATP Job Bank system allows you specify many things in your profile such as the regions you are interested in keywords about your skills and so on Make no mistake your task is to find job opportunities that are a good match The resources on this page and others on this site will be a good start The automated ATP Job Bank system notifies you of new postings that match general criteria but there is no substitute for doing some research Alaska has opportunities and challenges you won t find elsewhere It is important to be an educated job candidate if you are going to find a good match for both your professional skills and interests and your personal lifestyle requirements Not every teacher finds their own personal Paris on the Kuskokwim but our job is try to help

  • Alaska Teacher Placement: Teaching in Multiage and Multigrade Classrooms
    subject area Check your home state s requirements States vary in how hard it is to get this designation but once you meet the criteria Alaska will accept it automatically In cases where your state has an easier standard of meeting Highly Qualified status thatn Alaska s you may be better off getting a document which lists your status Districts frequently try to find teachers with specific strengths outside of endorsement areas that will compliment those of existing staff members at a site This is why questions about what other areas you are willing or feel qualified to teach are critical in interviews This is also why districts will ask probing questions about your other interests and hobbies They are looking for diverse individuals The reason you get or don t get a job may not have to do with your perceived skill in teaching your specialty area How you fit or compliment the reality of that district s site specific strengths and weaknesses can have a powerful influence Are You a Generalist Oddly enough there are no Multigrade Generalist teacher endorsement programs in Alaska and few exist in other parts of the country There are a few programs in other states which result in Generalist certification and Alaska does recognize these for teachers moving up here Alaska will use the same wording from your Institutional Endorsement paperwork to reflect what you can teach and with what age ranges Because most teachers whether trained in Alaska or in the Lower 48 have not had specific pre service training in how to address multiple age and grade levels taught together we have tried to assemble some basics here on what works in these settings The skills a generalist uses to reach diverse levels in the same classroom are not necessarily what you experienced in your pre service training or in your student teaching Even experienced teachers need to adapt to multigrade settings to be effective Effective Multigrade Multiage Instruction For our purposes here we will use the terms multigrade and multiage interchangeably Some researchers have said that multigrade classrooms are settings where grade levels are combined due to necessity while multiage are vertically grouped or mixed for pedagogical reasons or on purpose Researchers have found that whether combined by necessity or by intent there were certain common practices that made these settings more effective Miller 1989 Venneman 1995 These practices will be alluded to in the questions and answers below Far more detailed information is available through the links the bottom of this page If you are looking for practical information don t miss downloading Bruce Miller s excellent Multigrade Handbook in PDF format This resource has examples and research based conclusions about the nuts and bolts of multigrade classroom practice Differentiated Instruction In addition resources about Differentiated Instruction will listed here and briefly discussed In recent years the DI literature has combined research and best practices from both regular and special education areas to focus on differentiating instruction to meeting
