K-12 Chemistry Teaching Jobs

Southern Teachers is an education recruitment firm working with over 750 K-12 private schools in the South. Their personalized teacher placement service helps you run an efficient job search and discern the best opportunities for you. The agency will learn about your experience and the parameters of your search (position type, schools type, and geography), and make referrals based on that information and their knowledge of their schools. Southern Teachers’ placement services are free for candidates.

Private/independent schools often have greater flexibility in their hiring than do public schools. As a result, teacher certification is not required for most middle and high school teaching positions. Generally speaking, candidates applying for private school teaching jobs should have a bachelor’s degree in the same field as their teaching field (e.g., a math major could be hired to teach 9th-grade algebra).

The agency currently has 1800 jobs listed at 750 K-12 private schools, including many, many science jobs. Schools are trying to fill these 2022-23 positions as soon as possible. They are seeking new grads with majors or minors in Chemistry. Apply now.

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.

Southern Teachers Virtual Job Fair

Southern Teachers is a teacher placement agency that seeks to place candidates with independent schools in the South.  Southern Teachers will hold a Virtual Job Fair on February 5th. This event will give interested candidates the opportunity to pursue jobs at schools who are seeking new talent.

To attend this job fair, you first must be an active Southern Teachers candidate. All Southern Teachers candidates will be automatically registered for the event. If you are not yet an active candidate, you may apply here.
