About the Associate Teacher Program
Associate Teachers are essential members of the Convent & Stuart Hall community. They not only form a special bond with their lead teacher, but also participate in all school activities as full faculty members. Their energy, enthusiasm and new ideas are greatly valued at our schools.

The primary purpose of the Associate Teacher Program is to support our lead teachers and students. In addition, the program provides a learning opportunity for men and women interested in becoming educators.

The Associate Teacher program is a one to three year program that familiarizes the associate with theoretical and practical aspects of classroom teaching. Associate Teachers are assigned to a grade and section each fall and are partnered with a lead teacher who monitors his/her learning and performance. Associate Teachers are placed in grades K - 4.

Under the guidance of the lead teacher and through meetings and workshops designed specifically for our associate, important skill development includes:

  • building relationships with students
  • observing, assessing and supervising students
  • previewing and selecting curricular materials
  • developing appropriate and successful teaching methods
  • planning and implementing lessons
  • managing students and classrooms
  • conferencing and writing reports
  • job searching and portfolio/resume development
Associate Teachers are expected to attend faculty meetings and periodic pedagogical workshops given on campus. They are also encouraged to take advantage of off campus opportunities for professional growth. We begin accepting applications in February for the next academic year. Candidates are invited for an interview in March or April. Hiring is usually completed by May.

Yearly contracts for all new Associate Teachers begin at the end of August. A new teachers' orientation will be held at this time, in addition to an Associate Teacher meeting. All new hires are expected to attend both. Associate Teachers should be available to their lead teachers prior to the start of school to assist with classroom preparations, etc.

Applicant should submit both an Associate Teacher and a Convent & Stuart Hall employment application forms.  Please note that applicants interested in both Stuart Hall for Boys and Convent Elementary School should submit a separate application to each school.
