We're big fans of boarding schools. We're even bigger fans of introducing these incredible learning communities to first-year teachers who are excited by the prospect of living on campus, serving as a dorm parent, and sometimes even coaching a sport, and each year, we help upcoming or recent college graduates land their first teaching job at boarding schools across the country (don't worry, we also place a lot of mid-level and highly experienced educators at these schools, too).

We're also fans of TABS (The Association of Boarding Schools) and their mission to support schools, educators, students, and families in the global boarding school community. This summer, we are excited to partner with TABS to award 12 new boarding school teachers who we placed at their respective schools a grant to attend a virtual TABS Summer Session this July.

TABS Summer Sessions are a series of integrated professional development workshops taught by a dynamic and diverse group of proven boarding school leaders. Grant recipients were able to choose between two of offerings relevant to new educators: “This is the life! Boot Camp” which offers an inspiring introduction to working on a boarding school campus, or “New Teacher Academy” which is designed specifically for the new boarding school teacher and includes the opportunity to present a lesson and receive rounds of constructive critique by the experienced faculty.

Each of these 12 new boarding school educators were exceptional candidates with us, and represent high ambition, authenticity, and character. We are happy to present them with this professional development opportunity as they begin their journey into education.

Meet the Inaugural Summer Fellows below and learn more about their backgrounds and their new roles at boarding schools.
