Teacher Training Institute
Thank you for your interest in the Teacher Training Institute at the Buckingham Browne & Nichols School, a collaborative internship program between BB&N and Lesley University. This unique collaboration connects theory with practice in a comprehensive manner. It includes courses and seminars held at both BB&N and Lesley University. In addition, an intern is immersed in daily, supervised teaching with experienced mentor teachers.
“I can’t imagine a more effective, nurturing, and safe environment to challenge yourself, take risks, and prepare yourself to have your own classroom.”
- Ben Goldhaber
Current BB&N Teacher
