Southern Teachers Agency

Wanted: Student-Leaders – to Serve at Leading College-Prep Schools

Teacher/Coach Recruiting for 2015-16 is underway.

Apply Here:

STA recruits throughout the liberal arts and sciences, not just education majors. We help nearly 600 Mid-Atlantic and Southern college-prep schools hire enthusiastic learners, effective communicators, and caring role models for their classrooms, playing fields, service activities, and co-curricular programs.

These schools offer small classes, supportive and collegial faculty cultures, opportunities to innovate, create, and inspire. When they hire teachers for middle/high school, they focus on college coursework that applies to a college-prep curriculum. Degrees in secondary education can be helpful, but they’re not a hiring prerequisite.

Of course, specific training is expected for some positions:

  • Elementary-grade teachers and learning specialists must hold state licensure/certification.

  • For art, physical education, and music teachers, certification is strongly preferred.

  • Librarians and media specialists most hold an MLS or comparable degrees.

  • School counselors must hold master’s degrees in counselor education.

The urgency of today’s email: Students should apply soon to become STA teacher candidates so they can participate in upcoming recruitment fairs. Attaining full STA candidacy can take up to three weeks.

  • Math Masters (Virtual Fair for Math teachers) Thursday, January 29
  • Charlottesville Teachers Fair (interviews in person) Saturday, February 14
  • Texas Roundup (Virtual Fair for Texas independent schools) Thursday, March 12
