Associate Teacher Program (Pre-K - 4th Grade)

*Applications are being accepted for the 2023-2024 Associate Teacher Program

The Associate Teacher Program at Brunswick hires approximately eight new associate teachers each year. It is an integral part of Brunswick’s Pre and Lower Schools. Generally a two-year program, it is designed for college graduates interested in becoming teachers in an elementary-school setting while attending graduate school.

Participants gain significant classroom experience in two different grade levels over the course of two years, while pursuing a Master’s Degree in Education at a local university of their choice. Coupled with head teachers in grades Pre-Kindergarten through fourth, associate teachers learn all aspects of the teaching profession. With their mentor’s guidance, associate teachers share in lesson planning, teaching students, and record keeping in all areas of the curriculum. They gain experience communicating with parents and play a part in student evaluations and parent conferences.

In addition to mentoring they receive from their head teacher, associate teachers attend faculty meetings and scheduled teaching seminars to further their professional development. Regular supervision meetings with the head teacher and program director provide guidance for associate teachers with their work in the classroom. Associate teachers also play an integral role in Brunswick’s after-school program. This allows them an additional opportunity to work with children of varying ages outside the classroom.

Upon completion of two years, having usually earned a master’s degree and gained diverse experience, participants should be prepared for a career in teaching. Associate teachers go on to teach in both independent and public-school settings in different grade levels across the nation.

Brunswick School is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate in any phase of employment. We consider applicants without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, age, disability, marital status, or any other legally protected status.

Compensation

Associate teachers are offered a salary, partial reimbursement for graduate coursework, and a health benefits package.

Limited housing is available.
