Looking to teach in Mississippi? "It Feels Like Coming Home!"

Teaching Jobs in Jackson

In the words of the New York Times, Jackson still has “the familiarity of a big country town,” while extensively renovating its downtown and hosting creative new ventures in the arts and dining. You can still catch a glimpse of the past in throwback luncheonettes and historic sites commemorating author Eudora Welty and Civil Rights activist Medgar Evars. Renting or buying in one of the city’s charming neighborhoods is made easier by the low cost of living. Let us help you find a teaching job in Jackson. We work with great schools such as Jackson Academy, Jackson Preparatory School, and St. Andrew’s Episcopal School.
