Private/independent schools often have strong language programs including Spanish, French, Mandarin, German, and Latin/Classics. If there is a language that you are passionate about and you would like to spread the joy of learning a second language, you should consider teaching it at an independent school. Many of the independent schools that we work with place a strong value on foreign language acquisition and getting to know other cultures. In fact, many schools offer trips abroad in order to help their students experience the language and culture they have been studying first-hand.
In a private/independent school, foreign language teachers enjoy small class sizes conducive for differentiated instruction, allowing you to give students the individual attention that they deserve.
Teachers can truly get to know all of their students as well as others throughout the school community. The community is what private schools are all about. Teachers find that the focus is not on standardized testing, but instead curricular innovation, collaboration, and nurturing a love of learning in students.
• Degree(s) in Spanish, French, Mandarin/Chinese, Latin/Classics, German, or related field
• Enthusiasm for teaching languages and working with students in an independent, private, boarding or college preparatory setting
• State teaching licensure/certification is a plus, but is NOT a hiring prerequisite
Tim Green was thorough and thoughtful in his Athletics Assessment of our program at the University of Chicago Lab School, speaking to numerous people, poring over data, and evaluating our programs and facilities. He helped us identify and articulate key priorities over the short and long term. A great pleasure to work with, and the assessment was highly worthwhile. Thank you!
Southern Teachers has been a great long-term partner in our hiring. Taking the time and making the effort to know our school and its culture has built a relationship that has allowed you to send us better candidates.
At each juncture in my career, I have reconnected with Southern Teachers. They are unique among teacher agencies in that they commit time and resources to knowing candidates and building partnerships with them.
Southern Teachers is one of the easiest placement organizations I have worked with. Your staff is accessible, supportive, and sustains a high level of engagement. Your website is easy to navigate and the video introductions of candidates are a real plus.
