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.
The Southern Teachers Agency is the premier placement agency for private schools in the South. Since 1902, they have helped tens of thousands of teachers—both rookie and experienced—find jobs from Maryland to Miami to Midland, Texas. They are now recruiting graduating students who have the potential to become good chemistry teachers at independent schools around the South.
Southern Teachers already has openings listed for the 2018-19 academic year, and is expecting more than 3,000 jobs in total, including hundreds of jobs for science teachers but it can take a bit of time to progress from applicant to active candidate with Southern Teachers: they review each application individually, accept the candidates they believe they can help, interview each accepted candidate to understand their unique job search, and then check their references. With this understanding of what a candidate can do and also wants to do, they can place young teachers in jobs where they will have potential for success in the classroom.
This year they will host a Job Fair for our active candidates on February 3 in Atlanta, GA. In order to take advantage of all these opportunities—and their Atlanta Job Fair—please apply by Thanksgiving to become a candidate with Southern Teachers.
Southern Teachers’ services are free for candidates. Candidates do not necessarily need a teaching license or education major to be hired, especially for those teaching science.
