I am considering moving to Alaska and I have a question for teachers who live and teach in the less populated areas. I am an elementary school teacher(with a single subject English credential). It has been brought to my attention that it is hard for teachers in bush Alaska to get time off from work to hunt.
I would like to know how those of you who teach in the bush are able to make time for hunting.
Down here in the lower 48 I have worked for districts that allow teachers 10 personal/sick days per year. My current district allows 5 personal days per school year(plus additional sick days). With hunting a short distance away this works OK for me.
It is my understanding that it is very hard for bush teachers to get time off. I would like to know how you all manage to get out there to hunt.
Thanks in advance for any info you can provide!
