For more than 100 years, the University of Pittsburgh School of Education has prepared educators to be principled leaders in education. Our school’s mission is to ignite learning. We create that spark through our unique focus on supporting the well-being of all and on working to disrupt and transform inequitable educational structures. In addition to our top-ranked programs in teacher education and school leadership, we offer programs in educational policy, higher education, research methodology, health and physical activity, and human development. Led by our world-class faculty, our curriculum provides hands-on learning experiences that prepare students to make an immediate impact in their professions. With an alumni network of over 32,000 educators in nearly 90 countries around the world, the Pitt School of Education offers career opportunities in a wide variety of contexts. Join our school and ignite learning as an educator. 

We will be recruiting at the October 5, 2021 Virtual Teacher Recruitment Fair, and invite you to visit our representatives.
