Teaching Fellow - Math Department
Riverdale Country School is a preK - 12 day school in New York City that combines both traditional and innovative practices to provide an excellent Liberal Arts learning environment. Through our guiding principles - opening minds, developing character, and building community - we aim to shape disciplined and flexible individuals who will change global and local communities for the good.
Our Teaching Fellows program, entering its third set of hires, provides a structured, two-year program that prepares Fellows to teach on both the Middle School and Upper School levels. Fellows meet as a cohort weekly. They observe and eventually co-teach in both the Middle and Upper divisions, as well as have an assigned mentor in each of those divisions. The Fellow also teaches one class solo in the first year; in the second year, that is more likely to be either two or three classes, depending on need. Fellows are also given a housing stipend.
Riverdale is pairing with the University of Pennsylvania, working together so that Fellows will earn a Masters in Teaching during their two year fellowship at Riverdale. The program is largely conducted online, with four in person meetings a year. Riverdale will participate in the first cohort of this programalong with nine other excellent independent day schools, up and down the eastern seaboard. The Fellowship program is most appropriate for candidates without significant teaching experience or prior graduate work.
All candidates for Riverdale teaching positions should demonstrate an interest in engaging students in an environment that is both supportive and rigorous and will participate in community activities including advising groups, service opportunities, or other co-curricular activities. Riverdale is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
