We are more than recruiting.
We are building relationships.
Oakland attracts brilliant, hard-working, and deeply committed educators. We’ve come from many backgrounds, worked at every level of the public education system from the classroom to administrative leadership, taught in both school district and public charters, from grassroots to national networks.
In 2015, OUSD, local charter organizations and the County came together to form the Oakland Public Schools Equity Pledge, a city-wide partnership to create a public education system that works in the best interests of all students and their families, by disrupting inequity and cultivating excellence in our schools.
As part of this partnership, a Talent Working Group formed, which led a pilot unified marketing and recruitment campaign in 2017 to recruit the best from within and to Oakland, as well as support those in the profession who want to grow and improve.
We worked with Oaklandish to develop the brand with input from diverse teachers across the city. That is how TeachOakland was born.
