Join a community of teachers and families in one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse cities in the nation. Schools across Oakland are seeking to hire new and experienced teachers that are skilled, passionate, open-minded and committed to equity.

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 are:

TeachOakland is comprised of teachers and leaders working to improve public education in Oakland. TeachOakland is a project of schools across the city, who are uniting to recruit teacher talent to our city. We believe our student deserve brilliant, hard-working, and deeply committed educators from many backgrounds. Which is why we’re joining together to expand our recruitment reach through TeachOakland.

The mission of TeachOakland is to help retain and recruit the most talented educators for Oakland public schools. We believe that such educators should reflect the diversity of their students, believe deeply in the potential of every student to achieve, understand the importance of equity in achieving quality public education for all, and recognize the role community plays in helping support schools and students.

TeachOakland envisions a thriving, collaborative community of educators – teachers, school leaders, school support staff, administrators, community members, parents, grandparents, guardians, graduates, and of course students – that collectively support great public education for all of Oakland.
