Middle School Teaching Fellows

The Middle School Teaching Fellow Program is a full time two-year sequential program designed for recent college graduates or those completing advanced degrees who are interested in beginning a career in independent school education. Each Middle School Fellow will be matched with a Mentor Teacher in their subject of expertise and spends two years immersed in pedagogical and curricular study. English, French and/or Spanish majors highly encouraged to apply. Year 1 is focused on a structured observational, planning and co-teaching model. Year 2 expands its focus to a lead-teacher, observational, feedback loop model. In both years, Middle School Fellows participate in our KDS Modules Program where they are introduced to core aspects of independent school culture, training and best practices.

The Middle School Teaching Fellows are also involved in all aspects of middle school life. Middle School Teaching Fellows will participate in our Advisory program, extra-curricular activities, extensive field trip offerings, and have the opportunity to coach. MS Fellows will be involved in planning curriculum, designing assessments, meeting with parents, and working with individual students all within the framework of close supervision and support by their Mentor Teacher, Middle School Dean of Instruction, New Faculty Mentor, Department Chair and the Director of Middle School.
