ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Notre Dame Mission Volunteers, AmeriCorps--Boston

Notre Dame Mission Volunteers, AmeriCorps (NDMVA) is seeking Teaching Fellows to serve as a Full-time AmeriCorps Members at Epiphany School in Dorchester from September 2023-July 2024.

Epiphany is an independent school dedicated to providing excellent, tuition-free education to boys and girls of all faiths, from economically disadvantaged families from Boston. We are looking for recent college graduates who feel a commitment to the city, education, and children and are excited about the idea of working for a full-service school that is open 8am - 6pm. The teaching fellows’ primary responsibilities will be student teaching, running small reading groups, coaching sports, and assisting with a major area of school operations such as technology, student support, administration, etc. While it is recognized that the teaching fellows may have little or no teaching experience, the entire atmosphere is one of collaboration and mutual learning. Teaching fellows will participate in monthly professional development and will be paired with a mentor teacher who will meet with them weekly. If it is determined that teaching in an urban setting is what you are passionate about pursuing as a career, we may be able to support you in a second or third year where, in addition to serving as a teaching fellow, you may be accepted into a one year program to receive your master’s degree in education from Boston College. Epiphany has a Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Policy in place that applies to all AmeriCorps Teaching Fellows for whom the vaccine is authorized under the FDA.
