About the Career Panel
“Independent schools pride themselves on providing a unique educational experience for students—one that is robust and mission-driven, tailored to low student-to-teacher ratios and more personalized learning with high-quality teachers.” – Matt Balossi and Natalia R. Hernández, “Hiring and Retaining Great Independent School Teachers”
Teaching in an independent school can be a thoroughly rewarding career path for PhD graduates who enjoy teaching and mentoring younger students. Graduate Center alumni are particularly attractive to independent schools because they have prior teaching experience and demonstrated expertise in their field.
Come to our “Teaching in Independent Schools” career panel to hear from Graduate Center alumni who are putting their PhDs to work in independent schools. Panelists will talk about the advantages of teaching in these institutions and share tips on how to launch a successful job search in this field.
