Within the past 10 years, public education in Alaska has been on a steady decline. With many teachers struggling, it is no surprise that many had to leave and pursue careers elsewhere. The biggest difference between those who stay and those who quit is their perception. The teachers who quit, view the rough patches as a dead end and decide to pursue something a bit easier. The teachers who stay, see the rough patches as obstacles that help them become stronger both emotionally and physically. Alaska needs more teachers who are up for the challenge to become a leader.

Potential Teachers in Alaska:

As you find yourself getting more excited about becoming a teacher, take a look at your qualifications. Do you still just only have a Bachelor's Degree, or have you already made the right decision to earn an advanced degree? An advanced degree such as a Master's or PhD will help you earn the power of respect and influence. These leadership qualities will give you that jump start in your career to bypass those rough patches most people have in the beginning. Take a quick look at some of the accredited universities below.

Existing Teachers and Administrators in Alaska:

The fact that public schools in Alaska are poorly funded should be no surprise to you . As an existing teacher in Alaska, you are the backbone of public education. You are the person that incoming teachers seek for advice and support. What you do and say can push a school forward or keep it at a standstill. Unfortunately, with all that power, you (like the most of the other teachers in Alaska) are underpaid. However, if you can learn the advanced skills necessary to make a significant enough difference, you will begin to earn the respect you deserve and make the money you want to make. Do you even want to change your teaching job into a teaching career? Make the decision to move forward in your life by earning your Master’s Degree, PhD, and Administrative Credentials. You can simply request more information from some of the accredited universities below.
