DO YOU WANT TO BE A TEACHER?
If teaching or working in schools is something you’re considering after graduation, let Educator’s Ally help you with your job search. EA helps recent college graduates find positions in private (aka ‘independent’) day and boarding schools nationwide. These positions include but are not limited to: Associate/Assistant Teachers (ATs) and Teaching Fellows.
YOUR BEST ALLY
WE WILL HELP YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
We can also help connect you to non-teaching positions in schools, such as Admissions, Development, and Athletics.
In most cases, private schools do not require candidates to be certified nor is it necessary to be an education major. The goal of these programs is to provide a solid foundation for future careers in education.
Educator’s Ally was a fantastic partner during my job search. They matched me with exactly the type of positions I was looking for and were so helpful during the interview and hiring process. They were supportive both in finding new opportunities and understanding when I turned down positions that weren’t exactly the right fit. I have been incredibly happy with the school I have joined.

EA was a critical component in my job search. Before I connected with them, I was at a complete loss; it felt like I had so many things to do all at once and, this being my first post college job search, I was completely overwhelmed. The first thing my placement manager did when I connected with her was get to know me better by learning about my experiences and goals. She was very reassuring and had full confidence that I would secure a job (which was incredibly helpful because I wasn’t that confident). She provided me with an extensive list of schools and available positions to apply for, as well as tips on how to perfect my resume, cover letter, and interview. In addition to this, she offered general advice/ recommendations, and these resources really helped me fine-tune my portfolio. Bottom line, she was a kind, helpful, responsive (she responded to my emails so quickly!) and supportive mentor. I highly encourage anyone doing a job search in the independent school world to connect with EA. My placement manager was the best thing to happen to me during my job search, and without her I might not have gotten a job!
