I would say that with the exception of community colleges, and 
colleges which have instructor positions (largely to teach part-
time or to teach introductory freshman courses) there are few
colleges or universities which have teaching positions which
require no research.  Even the smallest colleges and those which
have only undergraduate programs usually want their faculty to
do research during the summer, or lead senior thesis research.

Getting a PhD is a long haul and if you think that teaching is
what you really want to do you might consider getting a masters
degree and then getting certified as a high school teacher.  There
was a demand for high school math and science teachers and some states
had accelerated licensing programs for those who had higher degrees
in the sciences...just a thought...
