Want a new life? Alaska teaching job awaits

LUKE MEINERT

EdTech master’s grad Luke Meinert wrote overnight and said he has a job opening in his district on July 1.

He’s looking for an online teacher who can teach multiple subjects, but he would prefer someone who can qualify for a secondary math or science endorsement. He also wants demonstrated proficiency in designing online courses.

The Yukon-Keokuk School District’s ten village schools are located along the Yukon, Koyukuk and Tanana river systems, a geographic area larger than the state of Washington (encompassing about 65,000 square miles of territory). More than 98% of the district’s 315 river school students are Alaska Native (Athabascan). The district also sponsors a statewide correspondence program called Raven Homeschool. There are approximately 1,500 students enrolled in Raven during the 2015-2016 school year. District-wide, YKSD serves over 1,400 full-time students.

Here’s a link to the abbreviated job announcement. For a more information, click on the link in the lower right corner of the announcement.

When the lucky applicant meets Luke Meinert for the first time, the Davenport, Iowa, native will likely extend his hand for a firm shake and say, “Enaa neenyo.” I’m glad you came.
