We’re excited you want to join our team!

Southern Teachers is the premier placement agency for private schools in the South. And we need your help to complete our important mission!

Since 1902, ST has helped thousands of teachers, coaches, and administrators find jobs at hundreds of private/independent schools around the South. Owned and operated by two families over five generations, ST has proudly served schools and educators for well over a century.  Though we've made many changes in the agency's operations, we have deliberately and diligently preserved the level of personal service that has been the defining characteristic of Southern Teachers over the years.

Much like the schools we work with, we are a close-knit community with great camaraderie. From our daily “Tea Time” to the annual Christmas party, and all of the moments in between, we join together to celebrate our successes and discuss our challenges. As part of a small business with 12 full-time employees, each person is able to master new skills and make significant contributions to the success of ST every day.

Just one of the many benefits of working for ST is the location. Our historic office building in Charlottesville, Virginia, is located across the street from the University of Virginia--we're a 5-minute walk to Thomas Jefferson's Rotunda and the Grounds of the University. “The Corner” is jam-packed with delicious restaurants and shops that are hard to resist and is abuzz with the vitality and excitement that comes with life in a college town.

We need brains, energy, conscientiousness, and integrity.  And conviction that all students deserve the best possible teachers.  If you can see yourself sharing our passion, please continue reading!
