As a San Francisco public school educator you'll have the opportunity to work with a diverse group of students alongside supportive and talented colleagues. You will be an integral part of the district's effort to close the achievement gap and achieve social justice for all of San Francisco's students.
San Francisco Unified School District's strategic plan, Beyond the Talk: Taking Action to Educate Every Child Now, emphasizes making social justice a reality by diminishing the predictive power of demographics. SFUSD is hiring teachers and other credentialed professionals who are committed to closing the existing achievement gap and promoting the success of all students through focused attention on three core areas: Access and Equity, Achievement, and Accountability. We are looking for teachers committed to delivering rigorous instruction to all students, creating a culturally responsive classroom environment, and building connections with families and the community.
We anticipate hiring in most subject areas and grade levels with a particular need for bilingual (Spanish, Mandarin and Cantonese), Math, Science and Special Education teachers. Specific openings will be posted on an ongoing basis through our online application system. If you are a talented educator committed to providing all students with the quality education they deserve, we encourage you to apply online today!
