Beauvoir: Associate Teacher Program

National Cathedral Elementary School

Washington, D.C.

Beauvoir AT

Each academic year Beauvoir, the National Cathedral Elementary School, employs as many as sixteen well-qualified college graduates to serve as Associate Teachers.  Typically joining the faculty for a one to two year appointment, the Associate Teacher will be introduced to a program of guided work in the classroom, instructional immersion, professional development, and exposure to the theories and methods of early childhood education.  The Associate Teacher will gain a deeper sense of the many responsibilities and joys of the teaching profession.  Associate Teachers take an active part in the life of the School and are integral in helping Beauvoir carry out its mission to instill a spirit of inquiry and a joy of learning in all students.  Associate Teachers are appointed to positions in Kindergarten through Third Grade.

Couture Fellowship

The Courture Fellowship program provides a series of experiences and structured reflections that are designed to expose a group of Yale University undergraduates to key issues in elementary education, both policy and practice, with the goal of creating future educators and engaged citizens.

This summer’s focus is on experiential and out-of-school learning. The Fellowship has two components. First, students have a field placement working with young children. There will be a variety of placement settings, including: the New Haven Public Schools, the Peabody Museum, Common Ground Charter School camps, the grassroots nonprofit Solar Youth’s summer program, Squash Haven, New Haven Free Public Library, the Boys and Girls Club, and Breakthrough Collaborative at Hopkins.

Students will also attend seminar sessions led by Dr. Elizabeth Carroll, the Director of Education Studies at Yale, which will consist of a weekly dinner meeting. Some dinners will include presentations by guest speakers with personal experience and expertise in this field. Fellows will also participate in a field trip to New York City to visit exemplary programs.

The deadline to apply is March 7, and interviews are rolling. 

Compensation: $550 per week. 

The Fellowship seminars will begin during the week of June 7 and continue through the end of July. Students must work a minimum of those 8 weeks at their placement and may work up to 11.
