Become a Teacher
“From the moment students enter a school, the most important factor in their success is not the color of their skin or the income of their parents, it’s the person standing at the front of the classroom.” — President Barack Obama
Teaching is our society’s noblest profession, requiring enormous skill, passion, innovation, commitment, and knowledge. Nothing is more important to the future of our children than our teachers. Effective teaching is the key to closing our achievement gaps and readying our students for college and lifelong learning.
All Hartford Public School teachers must be licensed by the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE).
There are two pathways to eligibility for educator certification in Connecticut:
- eligibility based on program preparation or
- eligibility based on teaching experience.
Please visit the Connecticut State Department of Education website (http://www.ctcert.org) to learn more about each type and which certificate you should pursue based on where you are in your career.
If you are certified in another state or country and are eligible to work in the United States, we encourage you to consider opportunities in the Hartford Public Schools.
The CSDE (http://www.ctcert.org) is the best source for information on how to obtain Connecticut state teaching licensure.
OUR 2020 TEACHER OF THE YEAR
Hartford Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Leslie Torres-Rodriguez and 2019 Teacher of the Year Narciso Moquete served as presenters of the 2020 Teacher of the Year award and announced the winner, Shakira Perez.
