Dreaming of teaching in Maryland? It's More Than You Can Imagine!

Teaching Jobs in Baltimore

Baltimore offers rich history and vibrant culture and is home to the National Aquarium as well as many theaters and museums. There is a strong sense of city pride in Baltimore. With Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium right in the center of the city, it's a great place to be a sports fan. Baltimore also stands out as being one of the most affordable major cities on the East Coast. You're also just a quick drive from other major cities such as DC, Philadelphia, and Annapolis. Interested in teaching in Baltimore? We work with many great schools including Boys' Latin, Friends School, Gilman, and Roland Park.

Teaching Jobs the DC Metro

Bethesda, Potomac, and Silver Spring and other Maryland suburbs that sit right outside of DC offer easy public transportation access into the city. Downtown Bethesda is designated by Maryland as an Arts and Entertainment District; it is a vibrant area with endless places to dine, shop, and be entertained. Silver Spring is also a wonderful place to live and work, offering a diverse population and fantastic international cuisine. You are only six miles from the nation’s capital, but it can feel far away in terms of lifestyle. Take a look at just a few of the excellent schools including BullisIndian Creek, and Stone Ridge.

Teaching Jobs on the Eastern Shore

The Eastern Shore of Maryland is on the east side of the Chesapeake Bay and is a haven for outdoor lovers. If you enjoy boating, fishing, or even just dining by the water you will love the Eastern Shore. There are many great towns on the Eastern Shore for shopping and dining, and with cities such as Baltimore, Ocean City, Annapolis, Washington DC, and Philadelphia close-by, it is easy to make weekend trips to more metropolitan areas.

We can help you teach on Maryland's Eastern Shore at great schools including Country School and Salisbury School.

Teaching Jobs in Annapolis

Maryland’s capital city lies 30 miles east of Washington DC and sits on the Chesapeake Bay at the mouth of the Severn River. Historic Downtown Annapolis is a bustling area full of shopping, restaurants, and bars with the focal points of the town being the Naval Academy, Capitol Building and the Harbor. Outside of the historic downtown, Annapolis has a suburban feel and is a great place to raise a family.

If you’re interested in teaching in Annapolis, we work with many great schools including Severn, Key School and Indian Creek.
