Hi there,

I am a high school English/History teacher in Australia and am trying to find out whether I can teacher in NYC. I have just spoken to the NYC Ed Dept and they have told me that I cannot teach in public schools because I didn't do an English literature degree - despite 4 years teaching experience!

I am dismayed! Does anyone have any contacts or know what I can do to try and teach there? Private schools were suggested, but I was wanting to teach in a public school.

Any information or help is appreciated!

Thanks,
Lauren

Thanks, I've already been looking at that application process, however, don't I need certification from the NYC Ed Dept to teach in New York City? If not, what's the difference? I guess my question is, what is the difference between the New York State Ed Dept and the New York City Ed Dept ..? Are there different teacher certifications?

The State of New York handles licensing of all public school teachers in the state. To be hired in New York City, you have to complete the licensing requirements established by the State .....
