“What a student learns in any subject should connect to other parts of their lives, personal and academic, both because we learn more deeply that way but also because such connections make life richer.”

- A Waring Teacher.

  • Teaching Fellowship

    Waring’s mission - to creating and sustain a community of lifelong learners - invites us to develop the next generation of excellent educators.

    This one-year fellowship offers recent graduates, at either the Bachelor’s or Master’s level, the opportunity to explore the profession of teaching. Fellows participate in the culture of learning at Waring, whether in the classroom or in the community. Their responsibilities are threefold: they teach classes, coach sports or lead extracurricular activities, and assist with student enrollment and advancement. Opportunities for teaching range across our entire academic and athletic program, and are based on the needs of the school and the talents of the applicant.

    In considering candidates for the fellowship, we seek people who are passionate about ideas and cultivating a love of learning, regardless of previous formal teaching experience. In the interest of equal representation in the teaching profession, we strongly encourage applications from candidates of color. Though all applicants will be seriously considered, this fellowship is aimed to diversify the experiences and perspective of lifelong learners.

    Fellows are paired with a faculty mentor, are provided professional development opportunities, and give voice to the direction of the school in faculty meetings. Waring gives freedom to educators to be creative in the classroom in every manner, from lesson plans to designing your own elective course. Fellows are also expected to participate in our annual school camping trip, and have the opportunity to collaborate in the design and teaching of a two-week experiential learning "Endterm" course in June on varied topics of interest.

    Interested candidates are invited to send a resume and cover letter to: positions@waringschool.org.
