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.
