The Franklin Road Academy fellows program is designed for graduating seniors who may be interested in pursuing education 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. However, 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.
The fellows program is designed to give one year of training and guided teaching experience to aspiring independent school educators, providing an opportunity to learn from dedicated master teachers while having time each day leading classes and co-curricular activities. The program is built on a partnership with a master teacher, one who hosts the fellow in his or her classroom and provides regular feedback and coaching on the two classes that fellows teach. Fellows also attend a free bi-weekly seminar taught by local university faculty.
