Foreign Language Teachers Looking for Jobs in California

California Language Teachers Association

CLTA Jobs Bulletin Board

CLTA (California Language Teachers Association) conducts its Placement Information Exchange as a service to members, to schools and school districts (elementary, middle school, high school, and community college) at no charge. The association’s role is limited to providing information: to the teachers who are seeking positions, to the schools and school districts which post vacancies. Responsibility for taking further action rests with the recipients of the information.

To work in California, candidates must have a preliminary or clear credential or must qualify for admission to a university intern program. Districts can no longer hire candidates with Emergency or Pre-Intern credentials.

For additional information on credentialling in California, please see the CalTeach website or contact the district with the opening.

This section is for teachers looking for a job.
