The Teaching Fellows Program

“To support the growing diversity of our student body, The Teaching Fellows Program aspires to identify, develop, and nurture future leaders in independent schools. We hope to find talented individuals who support and share our commitment to diversity, and we want to build a school community where students see themselves reflected in their teachers."
Marcus Smith, Teaching Fellows Program Director

Program At-A-Glance 

A group of recent college graduates will be selected to study teaching and leadership through a year-long curriculum led by the Teaching Fellows Program Director.  This cohort, made up of 4 to 5 Fellows, will explore the convergence of pedagogy and leadership philosophies through a variety of ways:

  • Strategic observations of classrooms
  • Presentation workshops
  • A mentorship program
  • Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging training
  • Professional development opportunities
  • Classroom technology training
  • Strategic engagement in school life  

“Providence Day has demonstrated leadership in the field of equity, inclusion, and belonging for more than 20 years. This is one of the most exciting projects we’ve seen when it comes to making a genuine impact on our community and the students we teach. We look forward to welcoming Teaching Fellows Program participants to become an integral part of the fabric of our community.”
- Dr. Glyn Cowlishaw, Head of School
