K-12 Science Teaching Opportunities

Southern Teachers Agency is the oldest placement agency in America and is a free resource for candidates.  Hundreds of private and independent schools around the South list vacancies with STA each year.  Private schools can hire teachers to teach in their major field of study, so a degree in education is typically not needed to teach science at the middle or high school level.

Although applications are accepted on a rolling basis, we strongly encourage students to apply to STA prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.  Doing so allows ample time to prepare for the peak hiring season which begins in January.  We also encourage applicants to begin speaking with potential references at this time.

Southern Teachers Agency will hold three major job fairs for registered STA candidates in 2013:
1)    Best of the South! Atlanta, GA, February 9
      Candidate application deadline: January 25
2)    STA at NAIS: Philadelphia, PA, February 27 – March 1
      Candidate application deadline: February 15
3)    A Capitol Campaign: Washington, DC, March 23
      Candidate application deadline: March 11

The STA online application can be found on our website at
