Opportunities to teach French for 2013-14 School Year

February 4, 2013

STA is the oldest teacher-placement service in America.  We receive job listings from hundreds of PK-12 private schools around the South.  Schools come to STA because they recognize the value of STA’s help in recruiting & screening talented candidates.

Certification is not required by private schools for many French jobs.

For most PK-12 French positions, a bachelor’s degree with a major in French (or at the very least a minor) is essential, but teacher certification is not.  Of course, a degree in foreign-language education is highly desirable, as is a master’s degree in French.  Candidates should have a GPA of 3.0 or higher.  Candidates will be required to undergo an oral French-language proficiency assessment.  Candidates must speak fluent English as well.  Some of these positions require prior teaching experience.

Interested candidates should apply to Southern Teachers Agency by submitting a completed STA application (available online), along with a resume and cover letter to
