Note: As it is important to make a positive first impression; please keep in mind that Career Services and your faculty advisors will be great resources for reviewing drafts of your communications.

A sample message might be something like:

Dear Dr. Bilsky,

I read your bio in the W&J CCN Mentoring Network and as a current junior majoring in English, I was wondering if you would be willing to speak with me about your experience as a graduate student at Stanford. I am preparing my own graduate school applications and welcome any advice you might have for me.

Thank you so much for your time and I appreciate your willingness to be a resource for W&J students.

Sincerely,

Jane Doe, W&J ‘16
English
Writer, W&J Red & Black

Or an alternative:

Dear Mr. Van Cleve,

As a W&J student majoring in Business Administration, I am thinking about the sales field as a career direction. After reading your career information in the W&J CCN Mentoring Network, I am very interested in learning more about your work in the field. Would you be willing to speak with me about your work as a Sales Director in a technical field? Any advice you have will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

Best regards,

John Doe, W&J ‘15

STA helps nearly 600 private and independent schools in the Mid-Atlantic and Southern states hire enthusiastic learners, communicators, and role models for their classrooms, playing fields, service activities, and co-curricular programs. These schools offer small classes, supportive and collegial faculty cultures, opportunities to innovate, create, and inspire.

And when they hire faculty, they focus on subject area expertise—proven success in the study of mathematics, foreign language, or biology, for example. Though helpful, an education major/degree is not a hiring prerequisite. STA’s services are personal, proven, and free for candidates.

Career Opportunities for Education, Arts & Sciences Majors

Southern Teachers Agency has helped great schools hire great teachers since 1902. We recruit top talent from college schools of education, teacher-training programs, and—what many folks may not realize—from wide-ranging academic departments. We seek top scholars and student-athletes who are called to lead, to connect with teenagers, to help children.

At K-12 private/independent schools, elementary teachers must hold degrees and licensure in elementary education. Requirements for middle and high school teachers are frequently more flexible at private schools. For example, science majors (and even science minors!) may teach science. Spanish majors teach Spanish. Simply put, completing a teacher certification program or earning a degree in secondary education is not a hiring prerequisite.

Teaching at private/independent schools means building close relationships in small classes, innovating and collaborating, inspiring discovery, focusing on learning—not on test taking. School communities include dedicated faculty, supportive alumni, and devoted parents who invest time and tuition to prepare children for college and for lives of leadership and service to others.

STA can help your top students get these great teaching jobs!

STA’s reputation is outstanding. Schools in the South have hired more candidates from STA than from any other source. Their trust in our expertise and integrity has sustained us since 1902.

STA’s reach is expansive. While we are a regional company, we receive thousands of job listings from nearly 600 schools in 16 states, from the Middle Atlantic south to Florida and west to Texas.

STA’s staff is excellent. Placement counselors provide personal attention in assembling credentials files, preparing for interviews, and discerning job opportunities.

STA’s Recruitment Fairs let candidates advocate for themselves to a host of prospective school employers.

STA’s services are free to candidates. Schools pay for our services—because they want the best.

The James Madison Fellowship, a federal program, offers pre-service (as well as in-service) teachers of government and history up to $24,000 to complete a Master’s degree in fields related to the U.S. Constitution. The program has awarded 1200 fellowships since its inception in 1992.
Junior Fellows (those who have not yet taught) have two years to complete full-time graduate studies at any accredited college or university in the country. In the past two decades, fellows have matriculated at nearly 400 colleges and universities around the nation.
After receiving their degree, Junior Fellows are required to teach in a secondary school for at least two years. I am pleased to report, however, that the majority of our Junior Fellows choose to pursue career in teaching. To date, over 2 million secondary students in all 50 states have been taught by James Madison Fellows.
The fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis, but candidates only compete with candidates from within each state – not on a nation-wide basis. Our goal is to award at least one James Madison Fellowship per year per state. Full details of the fellowship as well as applications are available at the Madison Foundation’s website, jamesmadison.gov. Applications are due each year on March 1.
