New York City is one of the most amazing, dynamic, and culturally rich places in the world. Over 8 million people live in distinct, vibrant neighborhoods throughout the city. As a teacher in New York City’s public schools, your classroom will represent a unique and fascinating slice of the city.
As a New York City teacher, you have access to resources and cultural institutions that you won’t find anywhere else. What better way to teach the importance of math than with a visit to the New York Stock Exchange? Or teach evolution with a trip to the American Museum of Natural History? Or read a book in class and take your students to a play on Broadway? With New York City schools’ partnerships with more than 200 arts and cultural organizations, every corner of the city has the potential to bring your lessons to life.
From Wall Street, to world-class zoos, aquariums, museums and more, New York is a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) city. Through countless partnerships with STEM-focused organizations, the New York City Department of Education has made leveraging this unmatched concentration of resources a priority so that our STEM teachers have truly unique, enriching experiences and that all of our students graduate well-prepared for success in a world that demands high-quality STEM knowledge and skills more than ever.
New York is truly the city that never sleeps. Attend world-class theater, concerts, museums, galleries, sporting events, and cultural festivals. Even though New York is an urban center, we’ve got 14 miles of beaches, 400 athletic fields, 54 public pools, and 17 nature centers. Choose from over 15,000 restaurants of every cuisine, price range, and style imaginable. You can shop everywhere from chic SoHo boutiques to out-of-the-way thrift stores.
If New York is one thing, it’s never boring. Every day is a learning experience – that’s what being a New Yorker is all about.
