Trinity School, a co-educational, K-12 institution located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, seeks beginning, promising, aspiring teachers with an interest in teaching as a career, excellent communication skills, and a desire to join our Grade Nine faculty as an apprentice teacher.
Under the guidance of faculty mentors, teaching fellows will gain a deep understanding of what constitutes good teaching, an appreciation of the role of independent schools in the world of education, and a strong sense of his or her own emerging talent and potential as a vital participant in a school community.
Teaching fellows participate in the academic and co-curricular life of the school while they are, at the same time, earning a Master’s degree through a distinctive program designed specifically for independent day school educators, sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education. Over the course of the two years of the fellowship, fellows will gradually take on a heavier teaching load as their experience grows.
To support the fellows, Trinity School will not only pair the fellow with an experienced teacher who will serve as a mentor, but will also underwrite the costs of the Master’s program and will provide access to highly affordable housing convenient to the school.
For 2018-2020, we are seeking one fellow to teach Grade Nine English. Committed to building a culturally diverse faculty, the School strongly encourages applications from minority candidates.
An Equal Opportunity Employer, Trinity School seeks candidates who will add to the diversity of our school community.
