Staff / Full-Time

The Learning Project Elementary School, Boston, MA

Elementary School Teaching Fellow (Grades 1-6): Paid Fellowship

The Learning Project Elementary School is located in Boston’s Back Bay and is an independent, co-ed day school for grades K-6. We maintain a strong foundation in character education, uphold high standards for academic performance, and maintain a strong commitment to enrolling a diverse community of students and families.

We are looking for Teaching Fellows who are interested in launching their careers as educators. The Teacher Training Fellowship Program is an opportunity to work one-on-one with an experienced Head Teacher who will help train you directly in the classroom to be a strong, well-rounded teacher. You will also be guided by the Fellowship Director who leads weekly seminars to further your professional development. This position entails some after school responsibilities. Enjoy learning more about the teaching profession and building your teaching skills in a tight-knit community of dedicated teachers and staff members at a school with a 49-year track record of excellence in the heart of Boston.

We celebrate and cherish the diversity of our community; approximately half of our students identify as people of color; we embrace neurodiversity; and are happy to have families join us from a variety of Boston neighborhoods, and cities further afield. While all candidates are encouraged to apply, we are actively seeking candidates from diverse backgrounds as part of our effort to ensure that our teaching staff and our hiring process reflects our mission, which is rooted in diversity, equity, inclusion and justice.  All applicants should connect to, and be willing to carry forward, these principles in their work.

The school has a limited number of moderate housing grants available for Fellows. If you would like to apply for a housing grant, please indicate this on your application page and we will provide the application supplement.

Position Start Date – August 2022

This is a one-year Fellowship, but, over the years, our Teaching Fellows have proven to be excellent candidates for our full-time teaching positions when they become available. There is also the possibility to apply to remain in the program for a second year in a leadership role as a Second-Year Fellow.
