What you may be up against.
Interested in leaving the ivory tower and teaching at a private high school? Wondering if Ph.D.'s are desirable candidates for prep school teaching positions or if making the switch would make you happy? Concerned that prep school kids will be little rebellious punks? Look no further.

Check out my latest Inside Higher Ed column, "The Private High School Option":

Great article, Eliza. And I assume you saw that the president of NAIS commented?

Excellent article. I'm considering this option. I feared that finding a HS job quickly will be unlikely given that i have no experience teaching teens, so the article basically confirmed my suspicion. Thanks again.

Thanks for the comments. I did see that the president of NAIS commented and it's good to know that not everyone has to use a search firm in order to find employment with a private school.
