Faculty Fellows Programs - Georgia and Tennessee
Wesleyan School Faculty Fellows Program in Peachtree Corners, GA is designed to give one year of guidance, training, and experience to recent college graduates considering teaching as a career. The Fellows Program provides individuals having little or no prior relevant teaching experience with the opportunity to develop teaching skills in a supportive environment in which they are given a great deal of responsibility and independence.
The Franklin Road Academy Fellows Program in Nashville, TN is designed for graduating seniors who may be interested in pursuing teaching or coaching opportunities at the middle or high school level in independent schools. We believe getting a rich, participatory experience—one that includes grading, planning, management, and communication—is the best training for an aspiring teacher. For many new teachers, starting with a full course load and planning load can be overwhelming. The immense amount of time planning and grading can crowd out time to reflect and learn.
