K-12 Spanish Teaching Opportunities

Southern Teachers Agency has helped great schools hire great teachers since 1902.  We recruit top talent from college schools of education, teacher-training programs, and—what many folks may not realize—from wide-ranging academic departments.  We seek top scholars and student-athletes who are called to lead, to connect with teenagers, to help children.

In particular, the private/independent schools with which we work need strong foreign-language teachers.

Hiring requirements in private/independent schools are typically more flexible than at public schools.  For Spanish teaching jobs in particular, schools will hire Spanish majors (and even Spanish minors) if they have a) command of the spoken and written language (with acceptable accent and intonation), b) enthusiasm for leading extracurricular activities and/or coaching sports, and c) demonstrable aptitude for managing and motivating students.  Simply put, completing a teacher certification program or earning a degree in secondary education is not a hiring prerequisite for K-12 Spanish teachers in most private schools.

Teaching at private/independent schools means building close relationships in small classes, innovating and collaborating, inspiring discovery, focusing on learning—not on test taking.  School communities include dedicated faculty, supportive alumni, and devoted parents who invest time and tuition to prepare children for college and for lives of leadership and service to others.

Requirements: 

For most PK-12 Spanish positions, a bachelor’s degree with a major in Spanish (or at the very least a minor) is essential, but teacher certification is not.  Of course, a degree in foreign-language education is highly desirable, as is a master’s degree in Spanish.  Candidates should have a GPA of 3.0 or higher.  Candidates will be required to undergo an oral Spanish-language proficiency assessment.  Candidates must speak fluent English as well.
