Teaching Fellows

The Holton-Arms Teaching Fellowship Program is designed to prepare educators to teach in the independent school setting. Fellows engage in a curriculum that prepares them to center learning experiences around the needs of students, where the goal is to educate the whole child - mind, soul, and spirit. Fellows learn to create classroom environments that encourage a love of learning, build educational experiences grounded in age and content appropriate pedagogy and curriculum, and explore what it means to be an integral part of a school community.

Teaching Fellowship Program Goals:

  • Develop and train new educators who will become versed in best educational practices for their subject area and age group, DEIB, SEL, and global competencies. 

  • Fellows will be ready to enter the world of education as reflective practitioners who engage in lifelong learning. 

  • Provide a diverse range of fellows with the opportunity to learn and grow as educators, while they also contribute to our community.

  • Provide personalized programing to meet the individual needs of the Fellows when possible. 

  • Create a program that positively impacts the life of Holton-Arms students and teachers through the inclusion of new community members with diverse perspectives and approaches to living out our mission.
