Train to be an
In-Demand Teacher

Chicago’s students need people who believe in them–passionate, caring adults who want to help them learn, grow, and discover their potential. This is the role of a CPS teacher.

If this career path excites you, CPS has a program that will prepare you to lead a classroom with skill and confidence. The CPS Teacher Residency program is geared toward those interested in transitioning to the field of education, or para-professionals who are already working in our classrooms and can see themselves taking on the role of a full-time teacher.

Every year, CPS works hard to find teachers to serve children in high-needs areas, including special education and bilingual roles. Apply to the Teacher Residency program, and next school year, that career could be yours.
