There are plenty of opportunities to teach in independent schools in the Crescent City, one of the most distinctive cities in America. The mention of New Orleans culls up familiar images of the French Quarter’s architecture, the sounds of brass bands playing in the street, and an easy-going and fun-loving atmosphere.
The second-largest city and capital of Louisiana, Baton Rouge is a thriving city. Louisiana State University offers big game days and opportunities for educational growth. The city’s positioning on the banks of the Mississippi River has grown the local economy through jobs in shipping and industry. Add in the great Cajun food, and Baton Rouge is a great place to teach.
There’s nothing funny about the idea of teaching in Lafayette [pronounced “Laffy-ette” by locals]. You’ll be able to find all the crawfish etouffée, fried gator tails, and zydeco music you desire here in the heart of Cajun country. With over 100,000 people and a major state university, Lafayette is full of activity and opportunity.
