We help talented teaching candidates find a school that fits their skills and career goals—and we give them a leg up in the hiring process.

Our Values

1. Equity begins with challenging, engaging instruction.

Our schools are committed to challenging students and delivering engaging, Common Core-aligned instruction. We believe every student has the potential to achieve their goals. All kids deserve to be challenged and inspired with high expectations—regardless of their race, family income, or ZIP code. We’re looking for teachers who know that education equality begins with challenging, engaging instruction.

2. Teacher diversity matters.

As role models to our students, we value teachers with a diversity of backgrounds and life experiences. Our experience confirms the research: diversity matters. Students taught by educators with similar life experiences do better academically, emotionally, and socially. We want diverse educators who have a commitment to giving every NYC student a great education.

3. STEM education is critical for our changing economy.

Just one in four students from low-income neighborhoods is proficient in math, and only one in six is proficient in science. We are actively seeking educators excited about preparing students for careers of the future. We support consortium members to find creative instructors to bridge the STEM divide for students across NYC. Our partners offer teachers a wide range of explorative STEM curricula that equip students with the skills to become the medical professionals and leading innovators of tomorrow’s economy.

4. All students deserve a supportive teacher that realizes their potential.

Only 60% of students with diagnosed disabilities graduate from high school, compared to 80% of students without a diagnosed disability. By pairing passionate teachers with consortium members achieving excellent outcomes for students we are moving the needle for communities and families. Teachers for NYC Charter Schools works alongside charter schools who strongly value college and career readiness and want to create equitable outcomes for students with unique learning needs.
