Bright teachers needed for the Sunshine State!

Jobs in South Florida

Miami is the sun and fun capital of the world. The Miami Metro area is the seventh-largest metro in the US and has something for everyone. Plus, the beaches are nothing short of spectacular. You'll find neighborhoods that highlight the culture, traditions, and of course food of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Central America and beyond. 

From West Palm Beach to Boca, on to Fort Lauderdale and Miami, we've got teaching jobs at great schools like Carrollton School, Palmer Trinity, Ransom Everglades and St. Andrew's School.

Teaching Jobs in Jacksonville

A major league city with a low cost of living. What's not to like? Especially when the city has waterfront dining, a riverwalk downtown and the largest urban park system in the entire country. Jacksonville offers expansive beaches and is less humid than many parts of Florida.

Let us help you find a great job Jacksonville! We work with schools such as Bolles School, Episcopal School of Jacksonville and St. Johns Country Day School.

Gulf Coast Teaching Jobs

The Gulf Coast of Florida offers miles of waterfront, white sand and warm water making it a coastal paradise. Sarasota offers mangrove tours and artistic history. Tampa has big business and big beaches. Downtown St. Petersburg has been revitalized, offering the Salvador Dali Museum and Sunken Gardens. While it's one of the wealthiest cities in the US, Naples still has a small-town feel. And Southern Teachers has K-12 jobs up and down the coast! Let us help you teach in schools such as Seacrest Country Day, Out-of-Door Academy, Tampa Preparatory, or Shorecrest.

Atlantic Coast Teaching Jobs

Melbourne is part of Florida's Space Coast—ground zero for U.S. space exploration, and therefore a great tech scene. In addition, it has serious beachfront offering surfing, fishing and kayaking.

Southern Teachers is a proud sponsor of FCIS (the Florida Council of Independent Schools), and if you're a teacher who wants a career in the Sunshine State, then we can help you find the right school. We work with private schools up and down the Atlantic coast of Florida including Holy Trinity Episcopal, St. Edward's School and Pine School.
