Primary and Elementary Internship Positions
Turning Point School is a leading co-educational, independent Primary, Elementary, and Middle day school, located in Culver City, CA. The Primary Division is Montessori based and educates children 2 years, 10 months old to 5 years, 6 months old; the traditional Elementary Division is composed of Kindergarten to Level 5; the Middle School houses Levels 6-8.
Turning Point's internship program is designed primarily, although not exclusively, for those who are pursuing a teaching credential. Interns work under the supervision of a mentor teacher, assist children in small group and individual settings, and are responsible for maintaining the classroom environment. The full-time internship positions are for the traditional school calendar beginning in September and continuing through the following June. Salary is competitive and includes a complete medical, dental and vision benefits package.
Intern appointments are for one year only, although on completion of a successful year it is not unusual for an Intern to be offered a subsequent contract. Thus, each year there are typically a handful of openings in the Primary, Elementary, and Middle School Divisions. Interns are also welcome to apply for a Head teaching position if one should become available and if they meet all of the Head teacher qualifications. Most Interns work toward their teaching credential in one of the local universities while in the Intern program. Turning Point is an equal opportunity employer.
Requirements for the positions are:
- Undergraduate degree for elementary positions.
- Twelve ECE units for primary positions.
Interviews for these positions begin in March each year.
