Randolph School Teaching Fellowship Program 2021-22
Randolph School is committed to fostering an inclusive, safe, and supportive learning environment that honors the dignity of all members of our community. The talents, differences, and perspectives of all members of our school family are both welcomed and respected.
We believe that student growth and development is enriched by a school community where the presence of diverse perspectives and life experiences is vital in seeking truth, building respect and empathy, strengthening cultural competencies, and preparing our students to lead as global citizens.
The purpose of the Teaching Fellowship is to recruit highly qualified recent and/or early career college graduates from under-represented groups to Randolph School with the goal of providing a solid foundation to prepare the Fellow for a career in the teaching profession. The Fellowship program supports Randolph School’s strategic goal of increasing diversity among the teaching faculty. Each Randolph Fellow is paired with an experienced mentor teacher to encourage and guide the Fellow throughout the year as they prepare for a career in education.
Recent college graduates (no more than 5 years out from completing their undergraduate degree) from historically under-represented groups in the teaching profession are eligible to apply for the fellowship. A Fellow may be selected to teach in the lower, middle, upper, or Greengate divisions of the School, based on the respective skills and experience of the applicant and the needs of the School. While prior teaching experience or an education degree is preferred, it is not required.
