In the Lower School, Fellows work primarily in Grades 2 – 4 with lead teachers and/or special area teachers. In the Middle and Upper Schools, Fellows work within a chosen discipline and gain experience working with various grade levels in their subject area.
Fellows are full participants in the classroom experience, gaining firsthand knowledge in curriculum development, classroom management, lesson planning, time management, and other areas of teaching.
Each Fellow is an integral part of student evaluations and staff meetings. Regularly scheduled meetings with a mentor; the Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; and the Assistant Head of School provide guidance for professional growth.
Each Fellow’s program is unique, designed at the beginning of the first year according to the Fellow’s interests and in conjunction with the mentor(s); Principal; Assistant Head of School; and Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. The second year program is designed after the first year.
During the paid fellowship, tuition for graduate studies is fully funded. Fellows also are eligible for benefits, including medical and dental insurance, coaching stipends, faculty professional development grants, and laptop computer subsidies. On-campus housing also may be available.
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2023-24 school year. Please check back in February 2024 for potential openings for the 2024-25 school year.
