While we do ask you to share your subject area preferences as part of our online application, applicants invited to interview are assigned a subject area. Candidates are evaluated for subject area assignment based on their preferences, their academic background and their self-reported Spanish language fluency and then assigned to a subject area based on the areas they are qualified to teach and the hiring needs of the Department of Education.
Candidates who are eligible to teach more than one subject area may submit a subject area appeal to change their subject area assignment after being offered admission to our program.
Our subject area eligibility requirements are listed below. Please note that candidates with a bachelor's degree in any field are considered eligible to teach Special Education through our program.
