    Thank you so much for sending your student teachers our way. You have prepared them with the art of teaching, and now you hope they discover the heart of teaching under the watchful eye of a master host teacher. The Anchorage School District is proud to work alongside a growing number of local and outside universities in a partnership to train preservice teachers. We look forward to the challenge. 

    Any University that has revised its pre-service teacher program or is placing pre-service teachers for the first time in the Anchorage School District should complete our university survey here
