For Staff New to Teaching

Specifically for new boarding school teachers, this interactive workshop includes the opportunity to practice presenting a class lesson and then discuss constructive critique with experienced faculty. You’ll explore specific case studies and join conversations around boarding school culture, classroom management, evaluations and grading so that you come away with practical tools and confidence before standing in front of your first class.

A Sampling of Topics:

  • Classroom management
  • Culture & politics of the independent school
  • School’s mission: what does it mean?
  • Evaluation / Grading
  • Individualized teaching of students
  • Challenge of teaching at a boarding school
  • Legal issues

Very Helpful for new teachers – the experience was unique and authentic.
