The Hun School of Princeton seeks dynamic and creative Teaching Fellows for the 2020-2021 academic year. 


Each year, Hun hires three (3) aspiring teachers to take part in the Teaching Fellow Program. The program is designed for new educators to gain valuable teaching and boarding school experience in order to further pursue a career in education. 

The Hun School Teaching Fellows live on campus as they hone their skills through observation, discussion, and teaching.  Throughout the year, they gain experience in four areas foundational to independent schools – classroom pedagogy and practice, resident life responsibility, coaching, and advising. 

Fellows will work with a mentor while performing duties essential to the classroom and to resident life. They will grow through classroom observations in the first marking period; co-teach in the second marking period; and assume all classroom responsibilities in their discipline for the second semester (third and fourth marking periods). In addition, Teaching Fellows coach two seasons in athletics.

As part of their resident responsibilities, each Teaching Fellow will perform dorm duties one night a week and one weekend a month as well as assist in the Resident Life Office.

  • A love for working with young people;
  • A commitment to a diverse and inclusive community;
  • A passion for teaching in an innovative, experiential, and student-centered environment;
  • Ability to work collaboratively and effectively with students, parents, faculty, and staff;
  • Personal qualities including resilience, approachability, and kindness;
  • Excellent technology skills;
  • A desire to contribute to school life outside of the classroom on a lively boarding school campus.
