Southern Teachers: Virtual Interviews

A Southern Teachers representative is holding virtual interviews for OSU students who would like to learn more about great teaching jobs at K-12 private/independent schools.

The interview day is:

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Students should submit resumes to Handshake
Resume submission deadline:  Thursday, April 8, 2021


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.

Open Teaching Positions

Southern Teachers works with 650 K-12 private/independent, college-preparatory schools around the South. These schools list thousands of jobs throughout the year with Southern Teachers to find great educators to join their school communities.

In light of the ever-changing job market, Southern Teachers works diligently to maintain and foster new relationships with member schools to know their hiring needs.

Southern Teachers is still looking for candidates who are:

  • passionate about science and hold a strong academic record
  • enthusiastic about working with kids
  • looking to be part of a collaborative and engaging environment
