Teacher Recruitment

Your Mission. Their Future. Teach in Tampa.


Now’s the time! Hillsborough County Public Schools is recruiting talented teachers with a passion for urban education. Successful applicants for the 2017-18 school year will share a commitment to excellence and a belief that every child can learn.

As a teacher at HCPS, you’ll be inspired every day by our incredible students – many of whom are on their way to becoming the first in their family to graduate from college. And you’ll join a passionate team of teachers and school leaders with a single-minded focus on one mission – helping every student achieve their fullest potential. Read the "2017-18 Teach in Tampa - Lead. Teach. Inspire." publication to learn more!

Open hiring for the 2018-2019 school year begins May 16, 2018!

Vacancies for the 2018-2019 school year may be posted in late April/ early May. Please continue to check our vacancy page for the most updated vacancies.

The route to becoming a teacher requires education and certification. The most critical component is understanding your state’s specific requirements. While one clear route is available for those just graduating from college, it isn’t the only route. By following your state’s alternative certification route, you can become a teacher as part of a career change.

We are looking for motivated teachers who are committed to making an impact on student achievement and closing the achievement gap. In an effort to meet our goals, the HCPS Teacher Recruitment Office has committed to hosting and participating in a variety of community outreach and recruitment events: Webinars, Interview Nights, Teacher Interview Day (TID), College Campus Visits, Career Expo, and more.
