What We Look For


Seton Teacher Habits

Successful teacher candidates exemplify these key characteristics throughout the application and interview process.

Teaching Experience

A Wisconsin teaching license or a commitment to obtain one is required.

We are eager to work with highly-qualified candidates to build a personalized plan of study to achieve a license through our partner universities. Please contact our team if you have questions about your credential.

Although ideal candidates have teaching experience with evidence of results, we are always looking for great people who may be…

  • New to elementary and middle school,
  • New to teaching, or
  • New to education but who have a history of achievement (regardless of field) and want to be part of our change effort in Milwaukee.

We encourage aspiring educators to learn more about the Seton Teacher Residency. It’s a great way to earn your certification while being immersed in the classroom with an experienced teacher.

Equal Opportunity Employer

Seton Catholic Schools is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. All employment decisions are based on merit, qualifications, and competence.
