Latin Teaching Jobs

Posted on: March 1st, 2011 by mpranger

I just got notice from the Southern Teachers Agency that they currently have 18 Latin teaching jobs listed by schools for the 2011-12 school year, and more may be listed in coming months. STA is a teacher-placement service which receives job listings from PK-12 private schools around the South and recruits & screens talented candidates. If you’d like more information check STA’s website, or come talk to me (Dr. Pasco-Pranger) about Latin teaching!
