What You’ll Need

Therapy Travelers hires qualified teachers with the appropriate levels of education and experience. We employ both highly experienced educators and teachers who are building their careers at an earlier stage. Always, we look for professionals with a strong work ethic and a passion for special education.

The qualified professionals who join our team need to: 

  • Hold a Bachelor’s Degree, preferably in Education or Special Education. Some school districts also require a Master’s Degree
  • Hold specific certification depending on the job. For example, if you intend to work with autistic students, you will need an Autism Certificate (AC). 
  • Use your skills in innovation and patience. Not every student learns the same way. We seek special education teachers who can adapt to the needs of the individual student. 
  • Create comprehensive lesson plans

What You’ll Get

We invest our time, effort, and resources into helping special education teachers reach their full potential. These educators act as both teachers and advocates for some of the most vulnerable students. In turn, this vital work deserves appropriate compensation and a comprehensive benefits package.

These are just a few of the benefits of working with Therapy Travelers:

  • Health insurance (medical, dental, and vision)
  • 401K
  • Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
  • Paid sick time 
  • Vacation days
  • Paid professional development opportunities

We aim to set a higher standard for staffing agencies. If teachers have more financial incentives and less anxiety about their health, they can focus on helping students grow. Additionally, contract work can give educators a greater sense of work-life balance.
