Educators in their Element:
Stories from the Field
Meet the 12,000+ members who work in Alaska’s public schools.
From Napakiak, to Fairbanks, to St. Paul, Craig and everywhere in between, you will find NEA-Alaska’s hard-working members. With members in 213 of Alaska’s 229 communities, our members are the heart and soul of the union. Our differences are our strengths, and as a team, we are stronger together. This is a place to learn more about your educators, who they are, where they live, what they do, and why their membership in NEA-Alaska matters so much to them.
The Community School
Inside Pacific High School (PHS) in Sitka, Alaska, the walls that separate classrooms are designed to be removed, allowing for openness, robust conversations, and shared learning experiences. Once inside, it may seem like this is an untraditional education environment, but this couldn’t be further from the truth because tradition, culture, and community are the bedrock upon which Pacific High is built.
