Job Opportunities for Teachers

NYC public school teachers smiling


Per Session

Teachers have the opportunity to apply for paid activities or roles through "per session" postings. These work opportunities take place before school, after school, on the weekend, on DOE holidays, or during the summer. The name "per session" comes from the rate (listed in the UFT contract) teachers are paid for this work. Each per session opportunity has its own application, selection process and time commitment.

Become a Teacher Leader

Join the over 800 teacher leaders currently working in New York City's public schools. All eligible DOE teachers are invited to participate in the central screening process. Each teacher leadership role has unique qualifications and selection criteria.

Transfer to a Different School

The Open Market Hiring System (OMT) is open annually from April through August. Current teachers and other employees in eligible UFT-titles, who are either in active service or on an approved leave, are eligible to use it to seek transfers to different schools. Applications for new schools must be submitted using the process indicated on the new schools site, which also offers information on the new schools, positions, application process and selection criteria.

After the closing date in August, a release from your current principal is required for transfer, unless you have been placed in excess. For questions, contact HR Connect at (718) 935-4000.

The New York City Department of Education is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
