Carney, Sandoe & Associates is an educational recruitment firm that places teachers and administrators in private, independent and like-kind (charter, magnet, pilot and merit) schools across the nation and worldwide. They have placed over 27,000 teachers and administrators in independent schools since 1977.

Candidates will need at least a BA/BS in the subject area they will be teaching, although minors or concentrations can be acceptable for the following areas:  chemistry, physics, mathematics, and Spanish.  Experience working with children between the ages of 5-18 is preferred.  The ability to coach or direct extracurricular activities is very helpful.  Deadline to submit your resume is Friday, October 14, 2011 at 11:59 PM.  Those selected will interview on Friday, October 28 in the Davidson College Career Services Office.  For more information sign into WildcatLink.

Southern Teaching Agency is the oldest educational recruitment service in America.  They 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. 


For most other middle- and high-school teaching positions, a bachelor’s degree with a major in the teaching field (or at least a minor) is essential, but teacher certification is not.

If you are interesting in the following positions, these additional qualifications are required:

•     Elementary Education: teacher certification required and, typically, 3 years teaching experience

•     Art, Physical Education, and Music:  teacher certification strongly preferred

•     Learning Specialist:  teacher certification required

•      Media Specialist/Library:  MLS (or comparable degree) required

•      Counselor:  master’s degree in counselor education, but not necessarily for College Counselors

•      Administration:   master’s degree in administration preferred for most jobs.
