In the fall of 2012, St. Paul's and six other schools began a partnership with the University of Pennsylvania, creating the Penn Residency Master's in Teaching program (PRMT). Teaching fellows will participate in the program for two years, with work in two summers, one week each, at Penn, online work with the entire cohort of 20-25 fellows from all the schools, one weekend a term at one of the consortium schools with the Penn faculty, and course work with a mentor at St. Paul's, as well as the regular work of teaching fellows on the School's faculty. After two years the fellows will earn a MSEd from Penn and have two years of teaching experience.
The regular workload for a teaching fellow at St. Paul's for the full year is to live in a dorm, be part of all aspects of the residential life of the School, and usually coach (or assist) an interscholastic team. In the Fall Term of their first year the fellows generally sit in on classes but do not teach on their own. In the Winter Term, they start to teach on their own, but with the support and guidance of their mentor. In the spring, they generally teach one or two classes on their own. In the second year, fellows will teach two classes every term.
One goal of the PRMT is to broaden the population of educators prepared to teach in boarding schools by welcoming more diverse candidates.
All positions for the 2016-17 school year have been filled. Please check back in January when openings for the 2017-18 school year will be posted.
