I am writing to share good news about the School of Education at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. We are educating many future teachers and counselors, as well as providing current teachers with opportunities for further education. Our graduates are successful, filling many of the teaching and school counselor positions in the Interior, as well as in other areas of Alaska. Last spring, 119 UAF degrees and certificates were awarded to students from the School of Education, and next May, another 117 awards are expected. In the future we intend that the number will be even greater.
The future of UAF’s teacher and counselor preparation programs is bright.
