Current Openings for SPED Teachers in the Hawai‘i Dept. of Education

Each month, administrators in the Hawai‘i Department of Education will reach out to the Special Education Department at UH Mānoa to share employment opportunities. These employment options are shared through the sped department's monthly newsletters. To sign up for the newsletter, please visit: bit.ly/uhmspednewsletter

Please contact the school directly and be mindful that we do not receive updates once the positions are full, so you would need to inquire to determine if the position shown is still available. Use the search bar below to filter and learn more details about various positions.

Tips & Recommendations for Inquiring or Interviewing for DOE Positions:

  1. Be prepared: Learn about the school you are applying to; every HIDOE school should have their own website. Be prepared to share why you want to work at that school and why you are interested in the available position.
  2. Be professional: All communication (phone, email) should use professional language. Use appropriate letter conventions (e.g., greeting, body, closing). For example, do not address administrators by their first name, especially if you have never met.
  3. Be mindful: Inquire for positions you really want. Do not set up interviews broadly, especially if you don't intend on accepting the position if offered.
