Teaching Jobs in New Orleans

There are plenty of opportunities to teach in independent schools in the Crescent City, one of the most distinctive cities in America. The mention of New Orleans culls up familiar images of the French Quarter’s architecture, the sounds of brass bands playing in the street, and an easy-going and fun-loving atmosphere.

New Orleans is home to some great private schools, including Isidore Newman, Louise S. McGehee, Ursuline Academy, and others. Let us help you find a teaching job in New Orleans!

Teaching Jobs in Lafayette

There’s nothing funny about the idea of teaching in Lafayette [pronounced “Laffy-ette” by locals]. You’ll be able to find all the crawfish etouffée, fried gator tails, and zydeco music you desire here in the heart of Cajun country. With over 100,000 people and a major state university, Lafayette is full of activity and opportunity.

Great schools like Ascension Episcopal and Episcopal School of Acadiana are looking for talented teachers like you!
