Our History and Leadership
Gary Loup is our Founder and Director. Gary started in the teacher placement business in 1987 and has placed thousands of educators into new teaching or educational administrative positions. He was initially recruited by Educational Placement Service (EPS) to open a St. Louis office for them. EPS was expanding nationally and grew to 13 offices across the country, by far the nation’s largest teacher placement company. In 2007, EPS closed the placement side of the business and just operated as a job board website. Following that closure, Gary founded K12 Recruiters in order to continue to serve educators and schools. In 2016, the name was changed to TeacherJobs.
Teacher placement offices have operated in the U.S. since the early 1900’s. Today, there are about 20 agencies that specialize in teacher placement for permanent jobs. Most are on the east coast and work strictly with independent private schools. K12 Recruiters / TeacherJobs is one of the very few that work with all kinds of schools, including public, charter, independent private and religious affiliated private schools in the U.S.
