Who We Are 

We’re aspiring teachers committed to joining San Francisco Unified School District’s intern credential program. We serve San Francisco’s classrooms where we’re needed most. If you are committed to charting a new future for San Francisco’s students., join us

SFUSD (San Francisco Unified School District) Pathway to Teaching is a cohort of inspiring educators focused on equity and achievement in the San Francisco classrooms where they are needed most. During a year of teaching, coaching and community-building, they learn to forge relationships in their schools and develop rigorous, culturally relevant curriculum that will prepare students to live, thrive, and succeed in San Francisco and beyond. 

SFUSD is the seventh largest school district in California, every year serving more than 55,000 students who speak more than 44 documented languages in our 131 schools across the city of San Francisco. SFUSD’s strategic plan, “Transform Learning. Transform Lives.places access and equity, student achievement, and accountability at the forefront of every child’s education. 

Who We Want 

We are looking for recent college graduates and accomplished professionals who possess the skills and deep content knowledge to teach critical subjects where great teachers are often in short supply. For the 2021-22 school year, we are recruiting teachers who are interested in teaching in Multiple Subjects, Special Education, or Bilingual Spanish classrooms. 

You love San Francisco and you’re already making a difference in a school, a community program, or around the neighborhood. You know that many potentially great teachers don’t have the ability to spend years retraining for a new career. This is your pathway to teaching: Rooted, Reflective, Resilient. It will be challenging, but with the support of the district’s best training, you will be leading your own San Francisco classroom—and earning your teaching credential along the way. 

Benefits of SFUSD Pathway to Teaching 

Become a Great New Teacher: Our radically optimized training hones in on key skills new teachers need to get off to a strong start. We emphasize intensive classroom practice of teaching essentials, such as creating a positive classroom culture and delivering content clearly. You will train like a professional athlete, with plenty of opportunity to practice, reflect and improve. 

A Credential that Counts: Throughout your summer training and first year in the classroom, we carefully assess and support your growth, with expert coaching and personalized support. We award certification only to new teachers who demonstrate mastery of instructional skills and a consistent ability to help their students learn and thrive. It's a high bar--and an honor. 

Full Salary and Employer Paid Benefits: SFUSD is committed to attracting and retaining the best educators in the nation. Benefits of teaching in San Francisco include: 

  • Competitive salaries determined by experience, education level, and credentials 
  • Comprehensive medical, vision, and dental insurance for teachers and their eligible dependents
