K-12 Teaching Jobs for Education, Arts & Science Majors
For the 2016-17 school year, hundreds of private/independent schools around the South will turn to Southern Teachers for help finding the best teachers available.  The teaching environment in these schools can be exceptional:  small class sizes, students intent on preparing for college, and a focus on learning—not on test taking. Teachers certification is not necessarily required for these positions. There are a few jobs listed that begin in January 2016, so December graduates seeking good jobs are especially encouraged to apply. STA will hold three Job Fairs for teachers.  Participants must be active candidates with Southern Teachers, so that’s yet another reason to apply now!

Last week's article provided tips on how to overprepare for interviews.


There are a few more pieces of advice to heed before venturing out into the real world:

*Be willing to ask for help if it is needed. No one expects anyone else to have all the answers, so when in doubt, always speak up.

*Take time to get advice or feedback.

*Remember that finding happiness is a lifelong process that will almost certainly change several times, often in unexpected ways.

*Always meet new people, constantly develop new skills, and pursue interests.


*Never forget about enthusiasm. Do not be afraid to display passion or be successful.
