The Teaching Fellowship Program provides a unique and dynamic opportunity for aspiring/early career teachers to develop and hone their skills under the mentorship of experienced lead teachers. In addition to working directly with a Lead Teacher and grade level team, Teaching Fellows participate in professional growth as a cohort of learners.
Within the Teaching Fellow cohort, there are regular meetings and touchpoints throughout the year. The goal of the cohort is to enrich and deepen community connections, hone the Teaching Fellow’s craft of teaching, and delve deeper into specific learning and teaching approaches including Universal Design for Learning, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion work, and Responsive Classroom. As Teaching Fellows gain more skill and understanding of their areas of interest, their responsibilities and experiences expand within the classroom and the school.
