Why Work Here

Careers at Southview Elementary

We Supply the Classroom. You Change the Future. 

Every effective teacher knows the key to strong instruction starts with getting prepared. At Southview Elementary School, we are preparing powerful and successful students to achieve excellence through our state-recognized P.O.W.E.R. program where students practice being positive, organized, well-prepared, eager to learn, and respectful. Southview is a 2021 CLAS Banner School of Distinction.

The fact is that doesn't happen without a dynamic teacher in the classroom. So, why choose Southview? We know that teachers are looking for three things when it comes to selecting where they'd like to work: school culture, location, and school leadership.

Here's why you should choose Southview!


At SES, we're committed to fostering a culture of collaboration in our school community. That's why new teachers at Southview will find value in mentor/mentee relationships so that you'll never feel alone. Additionally, our district provides ample resources, like up-to-date technology, a literacy coach, and collaborative planning time, to support this work. We believe it's the people who make the magic happen through our shared vision and core values!


Did you know that Southview is conveniently located in the City of Tuscaloosa, right off Interstate 20/59? This location is ideal for those looking to relocate to Tuscaloosa but needs easy access to the interstate system to visit friends and family back home.

Plus, we're fortunate to have great support from our Adopt-A-School partner right down the street with Walmart Supercenter #1501.


Let's face it: leadership matters. Principal Ronika Amerson has set a clear vision for the direction of Southview Elementary by being honest, fair, and consistent. Her staff knows she is a supportive servant leader who has high expectations for all — students and staff alike. She leads an administrative leadership team that is highly visible in the school, making it easy to celebrate teachers and show her appreciation often!
