Event Detail

Charlotte Country Day School - Hearst Fellowship

Join representatives from Charlotte Country Day to learn about the Hearst Fellowship Program during a lunch reception. 

Charlotte Country Day School and Davidson College are pleased to announce their partnership in The Charlotte Country Day School Teaching Fellowship Program. Charlotte Country Day School has a rich history in providing Davidson students with excellent teaching/internship opportunities and hopes to strengthen these ties by introducing minority students to independent school teaching.

 

The Charlotte Country Day School Teaching Fellowship Program is a project designed to identify prospective minority teachers and introduce them to independent school teaching through a structured, full-year, salaried fellowship/internship program at Charlotte Country Day School. The school offers a stimulating professional environment where inexperienced teachers can find significant collegial support, observe diverse teaching styles and strategies, and interact with students as individuals in a variety of learning-teaching situations.

 

The selected teaching fellowship recipient(s) will have the support/direction of a faculty mentor, will be assigned specific teaching and extracurricular responsibilities and will be encouraged to participate in the life of the school. Throughout the year, the teaching fellow(s) will be given training and exposure to the teaching profession and to independent education through national and local conferences and workshops.

 

Successful teaching fellows may become candidates for available Charlotte Country Day School teaching positions and placement in other independent schools or public schools beyond the fellowship year. All interested seniors, please contact the Davidson College Career Development, the Dean of Students Office, or Davidson College Education Department.
