Each Berwick Academy TA works under the guidance of experienced mentors for an entire academic year. Throughout the year each TA has two different teaching placements where they build lasting connections with students and colleagues. The TA's receive continuous feedback from their mentor teacher and the program director. In addition, the cohort of TA's meets for weekly seminars, where they learn about curriculum planning and discuss classroom experiences.
Berwick TA's are also active participants in the wider Berwick Academy community: participating in parent - teacher conferences, attending faculty meetings, leading clubs and activities, and/or coaching athletic teams.
Berwick's teaching apprentices develop the knowledge and skills essential for successful teaching while earning legitimate work experience at one of New England’s finest independent schools. The year-long program will begin in June, and is open to aspiring educators in the elementary, middle, and high school levels (PK-12).
