The teacher-intern program at Hebron Academy provides the opportunity for recent college graduates interested in working under supervision to develop the varied skills required of secondary boarding school teachers. The program offers as wide an exposure as possible to all aspects of boarding school life.
The intern’s responsibilities will include supervised teaching under the guidance of an experienced member of the department, observation of other classes, and teaching or assisting in at least one other class. The fields open to interns are English, mathematics, science, and the arts. Interns also help coach athletics during three seasons, assist in dormitory supervision during the week and weekends, and participate in other areas of school life commensurate with their interests and talents.
Teacher-intern appointments are one-year, salaried positions. Also provided are living quarters, meals in the school's dining hall, and full utilities, except for telephone. Medical insurance is offered, with interns paying a small percentage of the premium for the plan chosen.
College seniors and recent graduates interested in applying for the internship program should submit a cover letter, a resume indicating education, previous employment, subject of interest, and athletic and/or coaching experience, a copy of their college transcript, and three letters of recommendation to Hebron Academy, ATTN: Emily Bonis, 339 Paris Road, Hebron, ME 04238 or emailed to Emily Bonis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
