Since 1991, Greenhill’s Carter Teaching Fellowship program has introduced over 240 young teachers to the world of independent school education through a variety of opportunities in the Lower School, 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.
In every way, teaching fellows are considered an integral part of the faculty of Greenhill School and are expected to participate fully in the life of the school. Carter Teaching Fellows are appointed to a one-year position. The fellowship salary for 2020-21 is $36,000 with payments every two weeks from August 2020 – July 2021.

Our 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.
