Anticipated Teaching Positions for the 2014-2015 Academic Year

The Teachers College Community School (TCCS) anticipates hiring early childhood and elementary classroom teachers, a special education teacher and a cluster teacher in physical education or art.

The Teachers College Community School was established by Teachers College (TC) and the New York City Department of Education as a non-selective, public, demonstration PreK-8 school which has a formal affiliation with the College. It opened in 2011 and is adding one grade each year through Grade 8. In 2014-2015, TCCS will include one PreK class, and two classes each of grades K–3. 

Teaching positions at TCCS represent an extraordinary opportunity to participate in a vibrant educational community and contribute to the development of this unique school. TC faculty and students are involved in the development of curriculum and formative assessments, pre-service fieldwork placements, professional development for teachers, academic enrichment experiences for children, and services that promote healthy development and family engagement. These activities are coordinated through the TC Office of School and Community Partnerships.

Candidates for teaching positions must hold appropriate New York State certification; certification in more than one area will be considered an asset. Prior experience teaching in an urban, public elementary school is expected, with a track record of collaborative teamwork, authentic and experiential pedagogy, integration of technology, demonstrated commitment to student achievement and participation in ongoing professional growth. 

The positions will be officially posted on the New York City Department of Education on March 20. For consideration, you may also submit a cover letter and resume directly to: Interviews will take place in April. Candidates selected for an interview will be asked to submit additional materials. Please note that the Department of Education has imposed a hiring freeze for common branch teachers, so candidates applying under a common branch license must be currently employed by DOE.
