Georgia Public & Private Schools

Susan Belmonte, Georgia Tech Pre-Teaching Advisor, can assist you in your search.


All public school systems in Georgia have to post open positions on the Teach Georgia website. You most likely will still have to apply through a particular system’s website and application system, but you can view jobs across the state in one location. Always cross check with a particular system’s website.

New job postings for an upcoming school year typically begin to appear in late January.  Positions appearing in the fall or winter of a school year are typically those that were not filled or have suddenly become open for some reason. Pay attention to the wording of the job postings.  “For immediate hire” means to start now, not at the start of the upcoming school year (late July/early August).

To teach in public schools in Georgia, you must have certification or be eligible for certification. See the Georgia Certification section of this website.

Certification note: Some private schools require or prefer you to acquire state certification before being hired or after being hired. Others do not require certification and will hire uncertified teachers.
