For Educators

Teach in a New Visions School

The biggest challenge facing public education is developing human capital; we need strong teachers, leaders, and other professionals capable of meeting the needs of our students and our schools.  New Visions is seeking talented and dedicated educators to join our network of schools.  New Visions works with schools in all five boroughs, from grades K-12; the majority of New Visions schools are either new or small schools.

A streamlined online process allows prospective teachers to apply for multiple positions with just one application. Candidates submit professional histories and teaching preferences that allow New Visions to facilitate close matches between schools and candidates.
