Carter Fellowship Program
|Since 1991, Greenhill’s teaching fellowship program has introduced over 185 young teachers to the world of independent school education through a variety of opportunities in the Lower and Middle Schools, the athletics and fine arts departments, and the Extended Day program.
In 2006, the fellowship program was named for Lucinda F. Carter, a master teacher of teachers during her 35 years at Greenhill.
Greenhill’s Carter Teaching Fellowship program has the following aims:
• To provide the world of education with inspired, committed, well-prepared young teachers ready for their own classrooms and programs.
• To provide a first class, nurturing and challenging mentoring process for young teachers by working closely with passionate, skilled, master teachers.
• To combine an introduction to teaching with theoretical study and seminars for talented and motivated beginners.
• To provide opportunities for significant personal and professional growth through the challenges of working with engaged, intellectually curious, and lively students.
• To infuse the Greenhill community with new ideas, energy, and vitality in the classrooms, fine arts and athletics programs, and co-curricular activities.
Carter Teaching Fellows are appointed to a one-year position, but in every way, the fellows are an integral part of the faculty of Greenhill School and are expected to participate fully in the life of the school.
In 2013-14, there will be six fellows in the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten and four fellows in grades 1 – 4. The fellowship salary, paid over 12-monthly installments, is $31,000.
