The Teaching Apprentice Program (TAP) is designed for highly motivated adults who want to learn and practice successful teaching skills by immersing themselves in a full time teaching apprenticeship program. It is our belief that true learning and growth occurs while working alongside seasoned and dedicated mentor teachers. Our six TAs receive individualized guidance, support and feedback from their mentor teacher, the on-site program director, and one another during their time on Berwick's hilltop.
During the first summer, the TAs build a solid foundation in education theories by enrolling in four graduate courses. In late August, they join the Berwick Academy faculty and begin applying their knowledge through supervised teaching and seminar discussions. During the year, our TAs actively participate in the Berwick community: developing curriculum, teaching lessons, participating in parent-teacher conferences, and joining in additional school enrichment activities of their interests, such as coaching. At Berwick Academy, TAs are valued and contributing members of the school community.
