While we do ask you to share your subject area preferences as part of our online application, applicants invited to interview are assigned a subject area. Candidates are evaluated for subject area assignment based on their academic background, their preferences and their self-reported Spanish language fluency. Candidates are then assigned to a subject area based on the areas they are qualified to teach and the hiring needs of the NYC Department of Education.
Candidates who are eligible to teach more than one subject area may submit a subject area appeal to change their subject area assignment after being offered admission to our program. We cannot guarantee that all appeals will be granted.
Our subject area eligibility requirements are linked here.
