Working at The LP
Frequently, our teachers find their “home” at The Learning Project, but occasionally we do seek experienced Head Teachers and Administrators to join our community of educators. All openings are listed here, on the AISNE and NAIS websites, on LinkedIn, School Spring, Handshake, amongst others. The Learning Project is eager to meet educators who are enthusiastic about the school’s mission and are hoping to join a collaborative and supportive work environment.
The Learning Project is committed to developing and nurturing the next generation of K-12 teachers. As part of this mission, the school hires up to six Fellows per year for its Teacher Training Fellowship Program. This program is a rich opportunity for beginning teachers to train directly with experienced mentor teachers and to develop their own skills by working daily in the classroom.
Fellows are placed in a grade level for the duration of the school year and take part in a structured progression that allows Fellows to take on varied and additional responsibilities throughout the course of the school year. Upon successful completion of the first year, Fellows are offered a stipend increase and a second year placement with a new grade level in order to broaden their experiences, apply their knowledge and skills, and assume more leadership responsibilities in the classroom.
Teaching Fellows meet weekly with their mentor teachers and also as a cohort in seminar with the Director of the Fellowship Program for professional development and to discuss their classroom experience. In addition, Teaching Fellows supervise children in the After School Program, enriching their experience with an opportunity to work with students across multiple grade levels. Placement in the program is perfect for recent undergraduate or graduate students, career changers, or those currently enrolled in a graduate level education program who are ready to launch their careers in teaching.
Teaching Fellows receive a medical benefit, plus a $35,000 yearly stipend. In addition, the school has a limited number of moderate housing grants available on a rolling basis for Fellows.
While all candidates are encouraged to apply, we are actively seeking candidates from diverse backgrounds as part of our broader effort to ensure that our community and our hiring process reflects our Mission, which is rooted in social justice, diversity, and equity. All applicants should connect to, and be willing to carry forward, these principles in their instructional and relational work.
