The Thirtieth Alaska State Legislation honored ASD substitute teacher Edward Washington II with an Award of Recognition on Wednesday, Oct. 9 for his “great contribution to the sounds and scenes of Anchorage.” Edward has been heavily involved in many organizations since graduating from Bartlett High School years ago. He has won multiple awards for his involvement and his musical talents. The award highlights the extensive work Edward has done at the University of Alaska Anchorage, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in music in 2016, to increase a culture of community for incoming students.

Edward has been a substitute teacher in the Anchorage School District for more than three years. Currently, he is teaching writing for Clark Middle School students, which happens to be the middle school he attended during his time as a student in ASD.

The Anchorage School District is proud to have educators like Edward who are innovative and passionate about creating a positive culture in our community.
