Apply to teach in Oakland Fall 2018


Teach diversity, justice, and joy.

Oakland is one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse cities in the nation whose longstanding commitment to equity and social justice stretches back to the free speech movement and Black Panthers. Oakland educators share that deep commitment to equity across a diversity of school models including personalized learning models, community schools, language immersion models, visual and performing arts, and many others.


Join a community of teachers and families.

Oakland education has deep community roots. Oakland Unified School District was at the forefront of the small schools movement in the early 2000s to transform school options for families in high poverty areas. Many of Oakland’s schools have an explicit focus on community voice and support, and excel in local partnerships, family engagement and whole child instruction. Educators join a community of like-minded peers who take a holistic and relationship-driven approach to teaching.


Live in Oakland, where culture and sunshine come together.

There’s a reason why so many people are moving to Oakland. A short drive from San Francisco on one side and the redwood forest on the other, Oakland offers the best of California’s natural beauty and culture. Oaklanders enjoy a rich arts and food scene, an aesthetically beautiful city, and a unique community of social justice-minded creatives and innovators. It’s this “Oaklandish” combination that makes it a great place to live.


Who we’re looking for:

Schools across Oakland are seeking to hire teachers that are skilled, passionate, open-minded and committed to equity. Could you be one of them?
