Private/independent schools frequently 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 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). Some roles, however, do have more stringent requirements.
Teacher certification is usually required. Moreover, the strong private schools with which Southern Teachers works will seldom hire elementary teachers who do not have teaching experience. ST can help elementary candidates who have:
• a superior academic record (undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher)
• very strong professional recommendations
• at least two or three years of full-time classroom experience
• significant geographic flexibility in their search
Teacher certification strongly preferred.
MLS or comparable degree typically required.
Master's degree in counselor education. Most private schools will only hire experienced school counselors.
Master's degree in counseling desirable, but not typically required. Experience either in the field of college counseling or in college admissions is essential.
