Technically, this wasn't the middle of nowhere...

I check every day for full-time openings and periodically look at everything because sometimes they use the wrong job title. I limit searches to "SLPA" because if I use other terms I see more false positives, but I may miss posts like for my current school job, which calls me a "Speech Path Aide."

I am not an Aide, I am an Assistant. My license says so!

Anyway, I ran across an opening that just might be in the middle of nowhere:
Travel is by jet from Anchorage, and then by small plane, snowmobile or boat from Bethel to the village sites.
They say they have 4,000 students in an area about the size of West Virginia. WV has 280,000 schoolkids, so that is a bit less.

I am not a teacher, though, and I would not consider moving to civilization (Phoenix) for a better job, the void of Alaska is right out, despite:
$52,999.00 to $77,245.00/year
$7000 Signing Bonus
Why am I linking this? I don't know! I just feel compelled to provide a source, I don't invent data for the sake of argument:
