APS Still Hiring Special Ed & Bilingual Teachers, Counselors, Coaches, Educational Assistants

Qualified applicants are encouraged to apply online.

Albuquerque Public Schools is still looking for special education and bilingual teachers as well as school counselors, coaches and educational assistants for the school year that started last week.

The district needs about 90 full- and part-time special education teachers, including gifted teachers, at all levels – elementary, middle and high. Historically, APS along with school districts across the nation have a harder time filling these positions compared to other teaching jobs.

Another difficult position to fill each year is educational assistants, specifically those willing to work with special needs children. The district still has about 45 EA openings.

In addition, APS has about a dozen openings for elementary bilingual, dual language and/or English-as-a-Second-Language teachers. The district serves about 12,000 students in more than 40 elementary schools with bilingual education programs.

APS also is looking for assistant coaches at the middle and high school level.

The district places qualified substitute teachers in classes where a permanent staff member hasn't yet been hired. APS employs more than 6,000 teachers and 98 percent of those positions have been filled.

To apply for any of these positions, go to APS Jobs, then

  • Browse the job listing pages to find current openings
  • Create an online application and
  • Submit the application.

For more information, call 880-3700.
