Finding a Teaching Position

Nevada Teacher Corps (NTC) will help you find a position that’s right for you, so that both you and your principal feel good about the match. Our staff will offer resources, support, and guidance, but all hiring decisions are made by principals or other school-based administrators. While Fellows cannot select or choose their first-year school site, due to district and principal hiring needs, NTC staff will keep in-mind Fellow hiring preferences during the spring/summer hiring season. 


NTC will help you navigate the school hiring and employment processes, and connect you with our network of principals. Our team will host job-search events, set up mock-interviews, and provide résumé and personalized support.

Salary and Benefits

As a full-time employee of the district that hires you, you will earn the same starting salary as other first-year teachers in that district. New teachers who join high-need Nevada schools—Title I schools or schools that received one of the two lowest ratings for school performance statewide—may be eligible for bonuses of up to $5,000 as determined annually by state and local budgets. 

You will also be able to access the same comprehensive benefits as all new and fully licensed teachers in your district, including medical, dental, vision and life insurance coverage, and discounts through the Clark County Education Association. Nevada also has one of the most generous state retirement systems in the country.


New teachers who join high-need schools may be eligible for Stafford and Perkins student loan deferment or forgiveness. For details, please contact your loan provider directly or visit the Federal Student Aid website.

If you have private student loans, we encourage you to ask your lender about potential loan-forgiveness programs. You can also get more information from the Silver State Credit Union, which offers low-interest loans for new teachers.
