Teaching Fellows 

Riverdale’s Teaching Fellowship program works in concert with the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education. Each year, Riverdale hires two Teaching Fellows to work in various disciplines. Those disciplines shift from year to year, depending on the school’s needs. 

Fellows are paid a salary as well as a modest housing stipend.

In the first year of their Fellowship, Teaching Fellows’ responsibilities at Riverdale include: teaching one section of a class solo; working with a mentor teacher in a corresponding class in the Middle School and the Upper School; serving as a Homebase or Advisory teacher and participating in the school life in other ways as are assigned.

In the second year of the Fellowship, Teaching Fellows teach three classes, as well as the aforementioned responsibilities. While they will continue to have an assigned mentor, the Fellows will not be asked to co-teach a class unless circumstances warrant it.

In order to apply, candidates must provide a transcript, resume, two letters of recommendation, and a Statement of Purpose. Positions are posted on Riverdale job listings.

Fellows will earn their Master’s in Education over the course of two years. More information on Penn’s curriculum is available through their website. Some salient details include:

  • A blended learning curriculum

  • Peer group of Fellows at ten other day schools

  • Four in person meetings a year. Hotel and transportation are paid for by the sending school as well as the University of Pennsylvania

  • Fellows and “sending schools” combine to pay Penn’s tuition - Fellows pay 20% and sending schools pay 80%. In 2016-17, that tuition was just over $21,000.
