Southern Teachers: Virtual Interviews

Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Southern Teachers is holding virtual interviews for OSU students who are interested in teaching jobs at great K-12 private/independent schools.

The official application period closed last night, but there are still a couple interview slots available. Any students who are interested should send their resume to Maggie Goodman at Recruiter@SouthernTeachers.com. Alternatively, interested students may sign up to speak with a Southern Teachers rep at their Recruiting Office Hours (Thursdays, 1:00-3:30pm).


Southern Teachers helps college graduates find great jobs in college-preparatory schools around the South.

The teaching environment in these private/independent schools can be wonderful because of their small class sizes, their college-bound students, and their close-knit communities. At independent schools, quality isn’t just about test scores and college acceptances; it’s also the unique way that teachers maximize the potential of their students.

While successful progress through a teacher-education program is essential for some of these jobs (e.g., for elementary teachers), for many positions a teaching certificate is not required. Math majors can be hired to teach math; Spanish majors can teach Spanish, etc. Candidates do, however, need a strong academic record and the personal characteristics that will enable them to manage and motivate K-12 students. To summarize:  Teacher certification is not required for most jobs.
