Teaching ESL in New York City |
The New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) is looking for bright, motivated, and dedicated English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers who are prepared to be inspiring leaders in their classroom and raise achievement for every student. Collectively, our students speak more than 160 languages, and proficiency in English will be crucial for non-native speakers as they prepare for college and, eventually, career work. This position is your chance to open doors for one of the most diverse student populations in the country, and help our more than 150,000 English Language Learner (ELL) students prepare for their futures.
To help address the challenges of ESL education, we offer our teachers a variety of support tools meant to foster successful English-language instruction in the classroom. For example, we’ve developed a number of pilot programs, such as Imagine Learning English! and the EMC Masterpiece Series, to identify and test new methods to help our students grow as English speakers. We’ve also partnered with Stanford University’s “Understanding Language” program to help further cultivate our own ELL study units, and our teachers often work closely with the New York State Education Department’s Intensive Teacher Institute in Bilingual Education and ESL to develop their teaching proficiency.
With over 1,700 schools and 1.1 million students, New York City provides endless opportunities for teachers, whether you are beginning or continuing your teaching career. Our schools, ranging in size from 200 to 4,000 students, each provide a unique educational experience for students and teachers alike—whether in K-12 schools or specialized technology centers. And from Coney Island to Midtown Manhattan to the South Bronx, NYC schools span an immense geographic area, leaving you with countless school communities in which to find a home.
