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 Baton Rouge

The second-largest city and capital of Louisiana, Baton Rouge is a thriving city. Louisiana State University offers big game days and opportunities for educational growth. The city’s positioning on the banks of the Mississippi River has grown the local economy through jobs in shipping and industry. Add in the great Cajun food, and Baton Rouge is a great place to teach.

Let us help you teach Reading in Red Stick! We work with schools such as The Dunham School and Episcopal School of Baton Rouge.

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!
