  • Lower School Teaching Internship Position

    Shorecrest’s Lower School is implementing a special internship program that offers a unique learning and professional growth opportunity for recent college graduates, as well as adults interested in education or a career change to teaching.

    About Shorecrest’s Lower School
    The Lower School embraces a child-centered, progressive philosophy of teaching and learning. Students are viewed as active participants in their learning. They learn to read by reading great books and to write by writing and studying the craft of writing. Students engage in hands-on math investigations and in-depth projects. We believe that social and emotional learning go hand-in-hand with academic curriculum.

    Internship
    The Lower School is seeking responsible, respectful, conscientious and hard working individuals to work as “teaching interns” for the course of four months to one school year. Interns work directly with teachers and students throughout the day. The position allows individuals to gain experience working with students and faculty in one of Florida’s best independent schools, and to learn more about the field of education.

    Teaching interns will be supported and supervised by the Head of the Lower School and Dean of Curriculum and Instruction, and the classroom teacher. On a daily basis they also will have the instruction, direction and guidance of the classroom teacher.

    This is not a salaried position; however, it is an opportunity for the individual to gain valuable experience and to develop a professional growth plan. There also may be opportunities for the intern to teach clubs after school in art, music, robotics, etc.

    Schedules can be flexible but must total a minimum of 20 hours a week, align with the classes schedule, and have most of the time working with children. The internship is September to December. Current and new applicants may apply for a second internship which begins in January and ends in May. In some special cases, interns may continue working with the cooperating teacher for the entire school year.

    Criteria
    Interested candidates need to demonstrate strong communication skills, positive “can do” attitude and a commitment to innovative and child centered pedagogies of teaching and learning. Letters of recommendations about the candidate need to reflect that the individual is trustworthy, warm, reliable and demonstrates excellent judgement.

    Acceptance into the program is contingent upon appropriate background checks and interviews. Interns must agree to and follow policies expected in the Faculty and Staff Handbook.

    Qualifications
    • College diploma
    • Ability to apply common sense understanding and to carry out instructions furnished in written or oral form.
    • Competency with Google apps and word processing applications
    • Ability to communicate effectively with all constituents in a school environment
    • Committed to inclusion and issues of social justice and equity
    • Love for teaching and learning and working with children
    Interested candidates should send their resume, a letter of interest, a letter of recommendation, and an educational philosophy statement to Lisa Bianco at LBianco@Shorecrest.org by September 15.

    POLICY OF NON-DISCRIMINATION
    Shorecrest Preparatory School welcomes candidates for admissions and employment, regardless of age, race, culture, gender, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status, national or ethnic origin and does not discriminate on the basis of any category protected by law in the administration of any of its programs.

Initial Inquiry and Application

Written inquiries are welcome throughout the year. The most effective time to inquire for the following school year, however, is between February 15th and May 15th.
