The University of Pennsylvania has invited Princeton Day School to become an inaugural member of a groundbreaking collaboration between the Penn Graduate School of Education and a consortium of the nation's leading independent day schools, including Roxbury Latin (Boston), Trinity (NYC), and Riverdale (NYC).
Modeled on a similar partnership between Penn and several of America's top boarding schools, the "Penn Residency Master's in Teaching (PRMT)" program enables aspiring Middle and Upper School teachers to complete two-year teaching fellowships at host day schools while also receiving a Master's degree in education from Penn.
The PRMT program prepares participants to be:
- Outstanding teachers trained to meet the growing needs of a dynamic teaching landscape.
- Self-reflective professionals willing and able to develop strategies for studying and improving their own teaching.
- Leaders equipped to plan, build, and evaluate new curriculum and programs.
For 2017-18, Princeton Day School will hire one Fellow to teach Upper School Science, followed by additional Fellows each subsequent year.
The Fellowship will have three components: mentoring by veteran members of our faculty; teaching two sections of a course; and obtaining a Masters Degree from the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education.
