Opportunities to teach French for 2013-14 School Year

Southern Teachers Agency has already received French vacancy listings from schools for the 2013-14 academic year, and we anticipate many more in the coming months!  The types of French teaching jobs STA receives range from teaching French to elementary students through AP French Literature and Language courses.  Occasionally, the jobs will call for an ability to teach an additional foreign language as well.

TA 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.

Requirements:

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.

Application process:

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