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 Welding Instructor
Pete Daley, a veteran welding teacher at Hutchinson High, is leading instruction for 12 female students from across the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District (FNSBSD). Together, they’re learning the fundamentals of welding, discovering career possibilities, and putting their new skills to use by building metal bike racks for the city of Fairbanks.
