Save the Dates – Southern Teachers

It’s time to save the dates for the 2017 Southern Teachers Recruitment Fairs – one on February 4 in Atlanta, GA, and one on March 25 in Washington, D.C.!

Southern Teachers recruitment fairs are renowned for their courteous efficiency and productivity.  The morning begins with a brief career fair where candidates meet with school administrators to schedule an interview for the afternoon. The afternoon is time for candidates to interview with different schools for specific positions. Between interviews, we take the opportunity to meet our candidates in person and get to know them, and their search parameters, even better.

All active candidates are invited to attend, so complete our online application now!  An “active” candidate will have completed an application, been accepted by Southern Teachers, and interviewed by a Southern Teachers placement counselor.

Please forward this message to your best senior students, colleagues, or friends who are looking for K-12 teaching positions and encourage them to complete our application today. Southern Teachers has helped private/independent schools find qualified teachers since 1902. Today we work with over 600 schools from Maryland to Miami and west to Midland, TX. Don’t forget, our service is free to our teacher candidates!

As always, if you have questions about Southern Teachers, please feel free to call or email […] anytime. You can read more about us here.
