K-12 Science Teaching Jobs | Southern Teachers Agency


. . . because your students deserve the best

K-12 Teaching Jobs for Chemistry Majors

Since 1902, Southern Teachers has helped schools hire great science teachers.

Today, however, in a time of rapid digital and pedagogical change, the challenge for schools to craft productive and meaningful classroom experiences for their students is greater than ever.

The private and independent schools with which Southern Teachers works seek bright candidates who are eager to accept the challenge offered on this bold new pedagogical frontier.

As a result, while successful progress through a teacher certification program can be highly desirable, these schools are eager to hire teachers who have strong content knowledge in science, enthusiasm for leading extracurricular programs, ability to manage and motivate students, as well as a desire to incorporate technology into their teaching methods.

Simply put, a degree in education is not necessarily required.  Great independent schools will hire smart chemistry majors (and minors!) who have not been through a certification program.

Moreover, the teaching environment in these independent schools can be exceptional:  small class sizes, students intent on preparing for college, and a focus on learning chemistry—not on test taking.

Southern Teachers works with hundreds of schools that list thousands of jobs each year, including hundreds for science teachers.  School administrators trust Southern Teachers to know our candidates because we interview every candidate and check references, too.  That is to say, for over a century, we’ve provided superior service to young graduates who are seeking jobs.

And it’s a free service for candidates.  Schools pay for our services—because they want the best teachers possible.

As you might expect, more information is available on our website:  SouthernTeachers.com
