Breaking In: Finding an Entry Level Elementary Teaching Position


Are you an Education major who will graduate next spring? Or maybe you are studying another field but are a motivated, team player who has always been drawn to working with young children during your summer vacations as a babysitter or camp counselor? Or perhaps you are dissatisfied in that first position you accepted after graduating, love kids, and wonder if teaching is a better fit?

Independent schools are eager to bring talented, aspiring educators like you onboard at their schools in roles as Assistant Teachers where you will work as a full-time, paid teacher alongside an experienced, master teacher in an elementary or middle school classroom. These positions, generally designed as one or two year commitments, not only provide you with hands-on experience in the field of your possible forever career of choice but also the mentorship and on-site training that some novice teaching programs can lack.

Educator’s Ally is here to help you navigate the vast world of private school jobs as you explore opportunities. We are highly personalized in our approach and will draw on our deep knowledge of our client schools to answer questions about the qualifications for these positions (note that neither certification nor undergraduate coursework in Education are required!) and the different types of schools that might be a fit for you in particular. We will help tailor your application to best ensure that you secure a teaching position.
