Nobles Fellowship Program & Opportunities for Fall 2021


Overview of the Nobles Fellowship Program

Founded by George Washington Copp Noble in 1866, Noble and Greenough School is a co-educational, non-sectarian, rigorous academic community dedicated to motivating and inspiring students to achieve their highest potential and to lead lives characterized by service to others. Nobles is committed to creating a learning environment that represents diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, national origin, background, experience and perspective. Doing so is intrinsic to our mission and improves the educational experience for all.

Each year, Noble and Greenough School seeks to hire a select cohort of Nobles Fellows. The Fellows work in various departments of the school and can take on academic, administrative, and afternoon program responsibilities. Designed as a two-year experience for early-career educators and recent college/university graduates, a Nobles Fellowship is a full-time position that runs from late August through early June of each year of the fellowship. Compensation is provided to Fellows on a twelve-month basis and includes a salary plus health and dental insurance. Campus housing is often a part of the compensation package. While most Fellows remain for two years, those interested in only a one-year position are also encouraged to apply.

We search for Fellows who are hard working, looking to explore the world of education, and willing to step up to take on initiatives and responsibilities for the school as needed. This opportunity affords early-career educators with the ability to acquire an experience with, and an understanding of, many facets of school life. People of color, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ community, religious minorities, and members of other historically underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.

Fellows who work within an academic discipline work with a mentor teacher and become fully immersed in their specific department. Depending on the school’s needs and a Fellow’s interests and qualifications, a fellowship will often evolve into increased teaching opportunities over the course of the two years. Fellows who work within an administrative department, such as Admissions, EXCEL, or Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, are afforded hands-on, mentored experiences to explore these departments.

All Nobles Fellows coach and mentor students in all three seasons of our afternoon program, which consists of athletics, community service, and the arts. On-campus Fellows participate in our residential program. The cohort of Nobles Fellows meet weekly as a group to partake in professional development and are encouraged to take advantage of professional development opportunities outside of Nobles as well.

Over several decades, the Noble and Greenough School Fellowship Program has been a cornerstone in how the institution recruits, trains and grows the next generation of faculty and staff that have propelled the school forward.

Former Fellows' Perspectives

Thomas Bloom – Classics

The Nobles fellowship is a great way to explore the world of education. Not only does Nobles offer fellowships in teaching various subjects, but it also offers fellowships in other areas of the school such as admissions and development. On top of this, many fellows become involved with planning and chaperoning school trips, coaching multiple sports, and running a school club. The opportunities are endless and diverse. The best part of the program is the continuous support one feels from everyone in the community, especially the support given by a mentor. It has been a pleasure to work with such intelligent and motivated individuals who strive to carry out the school’s mission on a daily basis.

Ashley Bradley – English

Fellowships at Nobles are an excellent opportunity for young professionals to dip their hand into the realm of education. My fellowship experience has alloted me a unique and special opportunity to work in different arenas of the school including diversity initiatives, teaching, admissions, coaching, leading trips, planning and organizing meetings and events, and working closely under the tutelage of a mentor teacher who provides advice and support. Additionally, the constant dedication, hard work and passion demonstrated by fellow teachers makes Nobles an atmosphere ideal for a young teacher to grow and succeed in a community very much committed to living out its mission.

Kelsey Grousbeck – Visual Arts, Photography

Being a Nobles fellow allowed me to test many different positions in an independent school community while developing as a teacher and a colleague. Immediately, Nobles trusts you to take on a lot of responsibilities, including having your own classes instead of shadowing, but you are navigating these responsibilities under the mentorship of skilled and truly passionate faculty members. You are encouraged to find your own voice and seek out various roles in the community, and through coaching, teaching, chaperoning service trips, advising, and pursuing community initiatives, you can comfortably find your niche while receiving valuable feedback throughout the year. And though Nobles is known for its tight-knit community, the faculty and students all invite fresh ideas, personalities, and humor to the classroom and beyond, making fellows feel immediately welcomed and respected for broadening our community.

Michael Hoe – Science

Being a fellow at Nobles is a great way to gain valuable and lasting experiences in the classroom, on the fields/courts, in the dorm, on stage, and a variety of other arenas in the world of independent schools. Not only does the fellow program allow you to grow in a professional sense, but you are given the opportunity to develop personally in an intellectual, vibrant, and diverse community; furthermore, my colleagues at Nobles were always incredibly supportive and encouraging, even though I was a brand new teacher. My time as a fellow provided me with the scaffolding to be well prepared for any situation that could arise as a teacher, coach, advisor, colleague, or mentor. Ultimately, it also made me realize that I wanted to stay in the field of education and I truly believe I would have not had this experience elsewhere. I am grateful for the invaluable opportunity I had as a fellow at Nobles.

Michelle Huber – Modern Language, Spanish

The fellow experience offered me a perfect match of my prior experience with a new level of challenge. Before working as a fellow, I had a lot of experience assisting in the classroom, tutoring and working at summer programs, but I had never been a lead teacher. The fellowship provided a perfect next step with a significant amount of responsibility, without feeling too overwhelming. With mentoring from a language faculty member, as well as the dean of new faculty, we had ample opportunity to discuss problem-solving and concrete strategies. I remember very clearly during the first day of orientation when the head of school told us that we would be doing our job wrong if we never asked questions. The fellow experience is about learning how to be a teacher, but we don’t just sit around and talk about pedagogy; we observe, experiment, and live it. I also found that Nobles trusts its employees. If you have an initiative or an idea you want to bring to the classroom, it is always possible. Although I was hired as a Spanish teaching fellow, I was also able to work in the dance afternoon program, which is another major passion of mine. Nobles will find ways to utilize your skills and passions, because as an institution it knows that passionate teaching makes for passionate students.

David Medina – Social Science and History, Diversity Office, Provost Office

Fellowships at Nobles are an excellent opportunity for young professionals to try out a career in education. My fellowship experience allowed me to garner a panoply of experience in different arenas of the school including diversity initiatives, teaching social science, admissions, coaching, leading trips through the experiential initiatives of the school, planning and organizing events, and working closely under the tutelage of a mentor teacher who provides advice and support. Additionally, the constant dedication, hard work and passion demonstrated by a talented bevy of colleagues makes Nobles an atmosphere ideal for young teaching professionals to grow and succeed in a community very much committed to living out its mission.
