Southern Teachers Agency is beginning a new season of recruiting for the 2020-2021 school year! Southern Teachers Agency was founded in 1902 and is the oldest placement agency for educators in the country, and its services are free.
If you are interested in a chemistry teaching position, especially in the southern United States, Southern Teachers Agency can help you find the right fit. Candidates for the teaching positions do not necessarily need teacher certification to work in private/independent schools. To learn more and apply, you can visit their website.
If you need to complete community service hours or want to give back to the Columbus community, consider joining Scientific Thinkers! Scientific Thinkers is a student organization at OSU dedicated to mentoring minority students who are interested in STEM. This is a great opportunity for you to develop your leadership skills as well as gain experience in teaching STEM material. If you are interested, there will be a mandatory orientation on Tuesday August 27 at 1:00 pm or Thursday August 29 at 3:00 pm. RSVP here. Find out more about Scientific Thinkers here!
If you are a soon to graduate chemistry major and are looking for a teaching job, Southern Teachers can help! Southern Teachers is a free service that works to connect science teachers with private college prep schools in the South. Typically, these schools do not require completion of a teacher-training program. Southern Teachers is looking for prospective graduates who are successful, smart, charismatic, and want to motivate high school and middle school students to become excited about science. Apply here.
Southern Teachers is recruiting graduating students for the 2019-20 school year. Registration for their Job Fair in Charlotte (on February 2, 2019) will open November 1. To attend the fair, candidates must apply and then be interviewed by one of our counselors.
Southern Teachers is the premier recruiter for private schools in the South. Hundreds of schools throughout the South will list thousands of jobs with us, and there will be plenty of jobs for candidates seeking chemistry teaching jobs.
These schools want candidates who have a strong background in chemistry and a desire to impact the lives of students. A teaching license or education major is NOT generally required.
Applying before the Thanksgiving break is highly encouraged. It does take time for them to process and interview candidates, so the earlier one applies, the better. While they are primarily recruiting for 2019-20, they will have some opportunities for December graduates, as well. If interested, applying right away is important.
