Teaching Fellows

Deerfield Academy seeks innovative and energetic candidates to fill the position of Teaching Fellow for the 2021-2023 years. Each year Deerfield hires 2-4 aspiring teachers as Teaching Fellows for a two-year program in which they have an opportunity to develop their teaching practice and, at the same time, earn a M.S.Ed. from the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education. Teaching Fellows work with an experienced mentor, teach several classes, and participate in the rich and varied life of a boarding school while they also, with a cohort of peers, pursue the master’s degree awarded by UPenn GSE.

Strong candidates for the Teaching Fellow position will have demonstrated scholarship and initiative, will enjoy working with bright and motivated adolescents, and will thrive in an environment that asks for community engagement. Deerfield actively seeks candidates who are members of or support traditionally underrepresented groups—especially in terms of race, sexual orientation, and educational background.
