The Brookwood School Teacher Residency Program is a one-year accelerated master's degree program offered in collaboration with Lesley University. This full immersion program leads to a Master's Degree and Initial Massachusetts Teaching License in either Early Childhood or Elementary Education.
This comprehensive program allows participants to learn to teach by teaching while simultaneously exploring educational philosophy through graduate courses offered at both Brookwood School and Lesley University. Teaching Apprentices spend each day of the school year working cooperatively with mentor teachers and are actively involved in all aspects of classroom life. Each TA has two placements over the course of the year allowing experience at different grade levels and work with students at different stages of the developmental continuum.
TAs are involved in all aspects of the Brookwood community. They participate in faculty meetings, professional development workshops, parent conferences and assist in the writing of student progress reports.
Extensive guidance and support are provided throughout the program and during the job search process. Students leave our program well-prepared to take on the challenges of leading their own classroom.
This year-long program begins in June and is open to aspiring educators interested in becoming Early Childhood or Elementary teachers in grades PK – 6.
Begin the process by contacting Pam Hawes, Director of the Teacher Training Program, either by email (email@example.com) or by phone (978 526 4500 ext. 6345) to arrange an interview and visit to campus.
Additional Salary Information: This is an unpaid internship, although the tuition for earning your master's degree is significantly less than that of a traditional masters program. Additional stipends, scholarships and housing opportunities are available.
