Hiring Needs and Guidelines
The New York City Department of Education hired about 5,000 new teachers to NYC public schools last year and we expect to have similar or greater needs for the upcoming school year. Public schools in NYC may hire external teachers (teachers not currently employed by the NYC Department of Education) in the following subject areas:
- Special Education
- English as a Second Language
- Bilingual (all licenses)
- Additional middle school core content areas (English, social studies, and Spanish)
- Additional high school core content areas in the Bronx (English, social studies, and Spanish)
- Common Branches and Early Childhood in the Bronx and in Manhattan Districts 4, 5, and 6
New and growing schools may have opportunities for teachers in all subject areas. All interested teachers should complete an online teacher application to be eligible for these and other opportunities that may arise throughout the summer and upcoming school year.
Hiring needs may shift over the course of the summer and we suggest that applicants check back frequently for updates.
This information pertains to full-time teaching positions. In addition to teachers, the NYC Department of Education employs a wide variety of professionals and para-professionals in our schools. Visit the Pupil Personnel and Substitutes tab on this site for more about these titles and how to apply.
