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 school.

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

The Associate Teacher Program is a two-three year program that familiarizes the Associate Teacher with theoretical and practical aspects of classroom teaching. Associate Teachers are assigned to a grade and section in kindergarten - fourth grade and are partnered with a Lead Teacher who mentors his/her development as an educator. They have the option to reapply once their three-year term is complete, but are not guaranteed placement. Contracts are reassessed and renewed (if appropriate) yearly. Associate Teachers are expected to attend all faculty meetings and periodic pedagogical workshops given on campus. They are also encouraged to take advantage of off campus opportunities for professional growth. Release time and funds are available for approved workshops.

Under the guidance of the Lead Teacher and Associate Teacher Coordinator, and through meetings and workshops designed specifically for our Associate Teachers, the Associate Teachers develop these important skills:

  • 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

We begin accepting applications in February. Candidates are invited for an interview in March and April. Final hires are generally made by May for the following school year.

Qualifications:

  • BA/BS degree
  • Relevant experience with children (classroom experience preferred, but not required)
  • An interest in pursuing a career in education
  • Excellent communication skills with both children and adults
  • History of collegiality and collaboration with colleagues
  • Desire to actively support the Sacred Heart Goals and Criteria
