Savannah’s mild weather, nearby beaches, rich culture, and historical charm make it a unique city. The Historic District has beautifully lined cobblestone roads and Spanish moss-draped trees. After the miles of walkable streets, you can fill up at one of over 500 restaurants.

And Savannah is known for offering a great education! Come teach at Calvary Day School, Savannah Country Day, St. Andrew's, or Savannah Christian Prep just to name a few.

Teaching in South Georgia

Southern Teachers works with dozens of schools in Southern Georgia, through Macon, Albany, Columbus, Valdosta, Thomasville, and small towns in between. The warm subtropical climate means that flowers are practically blooming year round, from camellias in the winter, dogwoods and azaleas in the spring, crape myrtle and hydrangeas in the summer, and firebush throughout the warm fall. You’ll find southern charm, delicious food, and Okefenokee, a national wildlife refuge that covers 700 square miles along Georgia's southeastern border. We have teaching jobs in schools including Deerfield-Windsor, Brookstone SchoolFirst Presbyterian, or LaGrange.
