Southern Teachers Info Table

This Friday, October 7, a representative from Southern Teachers will be here at OSU to talk with students about teaching jobs in K-12 private/independent schools.

The rep will have an information table in the Ohio Union (Great Hall room, Friendship table) from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM.


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 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.
