Spanish Teaching Jobs
K-12 Spanish Teaching Jobs
Southern Teachers Agency is the oldest teacher agency in America.
We’ve helped candidates find jobs at great schools since 1902.
Hiring season is in full swing here at STA, and that means more jobs than ever are opening up for great foreign language teachers. Each year we help nearly 600 private andindependent schools in Mid-Atlantic and Southern states find candidates.
STA currently has 101 Spanish teaching jobs for the 2015-16 academic year.
Candidates do not have to be in a teacher-preparation program or major in education to be considered for faculty positions at outstanding independent schools. While experience in foreign language education is desirable, most secondary-school teachers are hired based on their major—their subject knowledge—and their gifts for working with young people. Candidates should have a minimum GPA of 3.0.
Click here to apply. Because we interview all of our candidates, it can take several weeks to become an active STA candidate. Schools are filling foreign language jobs now, so candidates should apply right away!
STA provides a free service for candidates.
Graduation is right around the corner, so please consider forwarding this message to any students who may be interested in teaching. Thank you for your consideration.
