|Career Partnership with Shady Hill School|
Tuesday, October 27
Shady Hill School is an independent, coeducational day school with a mission of educating children to be joyful, active learners who develop the intellectual discipline necessary to become contributing, ethical citizens. Each year the school’s Teacher Training Program provides sixteen aspiring teachers with well-guided, hands-on experiences in pre-K through eighth-grade classrooms where practice merged with theory is paramount. Immersion in the classroom while studying and working alongside a talented mentor is the best way to learn how to teach. In this one-year, site-based preparation program, apprentice teachers discover what teaching is all about through observation, supervised teaching, workshops, seminars, and continuous involvement in the life of the school.
The City Year experience is a strong indicator of future success as a Shady Hill School Apprentice Teacher. Serving a year with City Year strengthens an applicant’s
chances of being selected as a program participant.

When he teaches, his students are engaged, inquisitive, and challenged. He’s a natural, and it’s no surprise his experience has brought him to the classroom.
In his own words, "It’s who I am - I love service.”
