On behalf of Chinquapin Prep, a private school for highly motivated, low income students, I would like to share a potential opportunity for your graduating teaching alumni. The Chinquapin Teaching Fellowship takes people dedicated to becoming outstanding teachers and provides targeted training to help them achieve that goal. This 2 year program focuses on developing a rich understanding of instructional best practices and strong classroom management, and provides support by a mentor throughout the program.
As a former Breakthrough teaching alum, I can say that Chinquapin is an ideal place to work in Urban Education. The Program places Fellows in charge of 2-3 courses in first year, and 3-4 courses in their second year. Additionally, Fellows lead extracurricular activities (sports, arts, clubs), mentor students, and help supervise the boarding program. This workload provides many opportunities for the Fellows to make a profound impact on these students' lives both inside and outside the classroom.
In addition to salary and health benefits, housing is provided in apartments inside students dorms, allowing the Fellows to build life-long relationships with students. Students board Monday through Friday, and meals are provided when students are present.
More information about the school and a summary of this information can be found in the attached flyer. To apply, send cover letter and resume to Jeremy Goodreau (firstname.lastname@example.org).
