Only in Anchorage can you meet a moose, walk on a glacier and explore a vast, natural park, all in a single day. Between mountains and an inlet, surrounded by national parks and filled with Alaska wildlife, Anchorage combines the best of Alaska in a city that has the comforts of home and the hospitality of the Last Frontier.
The Anchorage School District is renowned for providing educational opportunities of the highest quality. Achieving this caliber of excellence depends on the efforts of thousands of faculty, staff, parents, and students. Employees, from our classroom teachers and principals to our staff who provide that integral support behind the scenes, work together to uphold our high standards and expectations. As Mario Cruz so eloquently states in the video, above, “If you want a job, apply for a job, but if you are looking for a second family, apply to the Anchorage School District.” ▪
Learn why Nikki chose ASD
Nikki Banks began working for ASD after college as a substitute teacher in 2001, then decided to pursue graduate school in order to become a full-time teacher and now administrator. "I decided to work for ASD because I had received an amazing education as an ASD student," she says. "The best part of my job is being able to help students realize their potential and be successful academically and behaviorally." Nikki is currently the assistant principal responsible for student services at West High School. "I have never experienced a dull moment or day in any position I have had with ASD," she recalls. "The students and staff become a community of learners together."
Flor Malto began working for ASD after graduating from college in 2006. He had worked in a few technology positions and internships during school, but was looking for something a little different. "Since ASD has one of the biggest infrastructures in Anchorage, I thought it would be a great place to learn how to develop and maintain efficient applications and systems," he explains. One of Flor's main responsibilities is creating applications that support staff, students, and parents across the entire district. "I get gratification from knowing that when I complete a project, I've created something that helps our end users complete their tasks more efficiently," he says. "This helps keep their focus on doing the job they were meant to do instead of worrying about the tools they use to complete it."
