Message to Heads:

When you have the right administrative team, ideas become reality.  And students win.  We can help you build that team.


Retained Search

The South’s best schools retain Southern Teachers for leadership searches because they value their time and our expertise.

• They trust our process because it lets them focus on the essential aspects of hiring outstanding new staff leaders while they keep their schools running smoothly.

• They know we recruit nationally for a diverse, gifted pool of candidates.

• They appreciate our ability to engage school constituents, facilitate effective interviews and evaluations, encourage conversations with top contenders, and use industry-leading personality assessments to help verify key attributes for the best hiring decisions.

Our process and partnership produce great results.


Contingency Search

Schools sometimes tap Southern Teachers’s talent pool without investing in a retained search.

• We charge no upfront fees.  Schools pay us only when they hire candidates we refer.

• We take the time to learn about the qualities of each job’s “ideal candidate.”

• We refer candidates only after interviewing them, contacting their references, and speaking with their supervisors.

• We do the legwork so schools can focus on selecting the best candidates for their specific needs.

Whichever method you choose, Southern Teachers can help you find the talent you need.  Take a look at some of our recent successes.


Which Search?

Factors include time, expense, school culture, and precedent.  Many of our client schools have retained our services for multiple searches over the years, while others prefer to use our contingency services.  Some use both of our services in the same year depending on the search!  We would love to chat with you about the differences between retained and contingency searches so you can make the right choice.

Why Hire ST?

No other placement firm offers our skillset and service.  We understand schools in the South and we reach candidates throughout the nation.  We are uniquely qualified to help Southern schools find leaders for continuing excellence.  Southern schools have a trusted partner in Southern Teachers. 

How to Get Started

Please contact Dr. Carey Goodman, Director, at Goodman@SouthernTeachers.com or at 434-295-9122.  We would love to discuss how Southern Teachers can serve and support your school.
