The program offers a thorough introduction to a career in education. Throughout the year, fellows receive personalized mentorship, preparation in pedagogy and instructional design, cultural competency training, extensive professional development and job placement assistance. Upon completion of the fellowship, each fellow will possess the skills necessary to be a lead teacher or qualified candidate in their division or department.
Fellows, who will be part of a cohort of four fellows each year, can expect to share a classroom with a mentor teacher in their department or grade level. If the fellow is pursuing a non-instructional position, then they work with a mentor in that office rather than in the classroom. Regardless, all fellows will have regular meetings with their mentor, their division head, their department- or grade-level chair, the Fellows’ Program Director, the Dean of Faculty and the Head of School. Fellows also contribute to or participate in School activities such as advisory meetings, clubs, sports and performances and attend relevant School events such as faculty meetings, assemblies and professional development days. Fellows engage fully in the life of the School, thereby gaining experience with a school setting and gaining insight into all aspects of a career in education.
Fellows receive a full-time salary and are eligible for benefits that include health, dental, and vision insurance; life insurance; free daily lunch; classroom supplies and teaching materials; all required texts; professional development support for on-and off-campus opportunities; and additional stipends for coaching and certain extracurricular activities.
By the conclusion of the fellowship, participants will have created a professional dossier of job application materials, a body of work for lesson plans and a career development plan.
