Groton School, a coeducational boarding school of 379 students in grades 8 through 12, located in Groton, Massachusetts, is offering for the fortieth year the Charles C. Alexander Teacher-Intern Program. This program serves recent college graduates interested in working under supervision to develop the varied skills required of secondary boarding school teachers. The program offers as wide an exposure as possible to all aspects of secondary boarding school life.
The intern’s responsibilities will include supervised teaching under the guidance of an experienced member of the department, observation of other classes, and teaching or assisting in at least one other class. The fields open to interns are English, History, Mathematics, Classics, French, Spanish, Chinese, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Religion, and the Arts (not Art History). Interns also help coach athletics during at least two but preferably three seasons, assist in dormitory supervision one evening per week and every fourth Saturday evening (or as needed), and participate in other areas of school life commensurate with their interests and talents.
Teacher-intern appointments are one-year, salaried positions. Also provided are living quarters, meals in the School Dining Hall, and full utilities, except for telephone. Medical insurance is offered, with interns paying a small percentage of the premium for whichever plan is chosen.
College seniors and recent graduates interested in applying for the internship program should submit a cover letter; a resume indicating education, previous employment, interests, and athletic experience; a copy of their college transcript; and three letters of recommendation to the Charles C. Alexander Teacher-Intern Program, Groton School, 282 Farmers Row, P.O. Box 991, Groton, MA 01450-0991, before January 6, 2017.
