The Hun School of Princeton’s Teaching Fellowship allows novice teachers the opportunity to practice three core responsibilities foundational to the world of independent schools in preparation for a career in education.
CLASSROOM PEDAGOGY AND PRACTICE: Teaching Fellows at The Hun School run our study support program, supporting individual students with study skill instruction while observing classes, working with a mentor, and participating in a cohort with other fellows to discuss and learn teaching basics. In the second semester, Fellows are given their own semester class to teach in the subject area of their expertise.
RESIDENT LIFE RESPONSIBILITY: Teaching Fellows at The Hun School live on our 27 acre campus in Princeton, New Jersey and work as equal members of the resident life community to offer supervision, support, and programming for our resident students who call The Hun School home. Fellows have their own individual studio apartments in Russell Hall, our iconic heart of campus.
COACHING AND ADVISING: Teaching Fellows at The Hun School coach two seasons under the supervision and guidance of Head Coaches and the Athletic Director. Fellows are placed in sports of interest and learn coaching techniques in support of team development, character education, and leadership. Fellows are often given responsibility for Junior Varsity or Freshman teams as well as assisting with varsity programming.
