Join Something Bigger
At DCPS, your impact starts in your classroom – but doesn't end there. Together, our team of passionate educators is defying expectations about what DC's students can achieve and changing the path of public education.
JOIN THE NATION'S BEST TEACHERS – AND BECOME EVEN BETTER. We're looking for dynamic teachers who insist on excellence and are passionate about honing their craft. At DCPS, you'll get the feedback you need to do your best work, colleagues who share your high standards, and opportunities to lead without leaving the classroom.
WE PAY OUR TEACHERS LIKE PROFESSIONALS AND CELEBRATE THEM LIKE ROCKSTARS. Top teachers can earn more $100,000 in salary and bonuses by their fourth year and win awards of up to $10,000 for classroom excellence. Every year, we recognize the very best with an annual Standing Ovation gala.
WE'RE MAKING HISTORY. We’re setting an ambitious standard for great teaching and making it a reality across the district. With your help, we’ll transform education for our more than 51,000 students and become the first urban school district to close the opportunity gap between students from low-income backgrounds and their more affluent peers.
JOIN US. We accept applications in all subjects and grade levels for our 118 schools. We are particularly interested in candidates with a track record of success in the classroom. Watch our video about teaching in DCPS and start your application today.
