The Office of Teacher Recruitment and Quality (TRQ) thanks you for your interest in teaching in New York City's public schools. Please be sure you have reviewed all information regarding the application process available on our website.
Please note that if you are currently a New York City Department of Education teacher seeking to transfer schools, please do not complete this application. You will need to register and apply through the Open Market Hiring System when it opens in mid-April
Before you begin your online teacher application, we suggest you prepare some information you will need to provide in advance. This includes:
  • Details regarding your teaching and professional experience
  • Supporting documentation to demonstrate you meet the certification requirements to teach in NY
  • Academic history including GPA
  • Professional references
  • Current resume
  • Well thought out responses to four writing prompts
Our Online Teacher Application Guide contains more details on the application, including the writing prompts you will be asked to answer.
Throughout the application you will see this icon Question Mark next to certain fields. Click on the icon to see helpful information about that specific field.
The first step in completing your online application is to create an account by registering and completing your profile. If you have not already done so, please click on the "Register Now!" button and supply the requested information. During the registration step, you will define your user name (your email address) and password. Your email address will also be the primary means we use for contacting you so please check your inbox regularly, and check your junk mail or spam filter to make sure you are receiving emails from the NYC Department of Education (allow domains "@schools.nyc.gov" and "@nyc.teacherssupportnetwork.com").
While completing the application...
  • There are many mandatory fields labeled with an asterisk (*).
  • If you prepare the required information in advance, the average time to complete the online teacher application is approximately 45 minutes to one hour.
  • You may stop, save, and return later to complete your application by clicking on "Save and Exit" once a section has been completed. The system will not record the information you entered unless either the "Save and Exit" or "Save and Continue" buttons are clicked.
