Gilman School annually offers the one-year Foreman Fellowship to recent college graduates who have a strong interest in teaching. The Foreman Fellowship honors Johnnie Foreman, Gilman’s longtime Director of Community, Inclusion, and Equity and one of Gilman’s most beloved and outstanding faculty members.
Foreman fellows benefit from the coaching of a mentor teacher and a range of unique professional development experiences.
The Foreman fellow can be assigned to Gilman’s lower, middle or upper school depending on the candidates’ interests and experiences, as well as the school’s annual needs. Specific classroom responsibilities for the Foreman fellow will vary. Most fellows initially observe and shadow their mentor, gradually assuming instructional leadership as the fellowship unfolds.
The Foreman fellow will coach interscholastic and intramural sports and support co-curricular programs, in addition to their work in the classroom. And he or she will assist with advising and counseling as well.
GILMAN SCHOOL MISSION
Gilman is a diverse community dedicated to educating boys in mind, body, and spirit through particular emphasis upon academic excellence, athletic participation, and aesthetic appreciation. Gilman seeks to produce men of character and integrity who have the skills and ability to make a positive contribution to the communities in which they live and work.
Originally established in 1897 as “The Country Day School for Boys,” Gilman School is rooted in the belief that, in order to build character, school should provide every boy with strong academics and a full-day program that includes afternoon sports. Today, Gilman educates boys in kindergarten through Grade 12 through a rich, college-preparatory program of offerings in academics, athletics, and the arts. The school subscribes to the teacher-coach model and takes great pride in the fact that its teachers connect with the students through activities outside the classroom. Most Gilman teachers are involved in athletics and/or physical education. Teachers also help to cultivate students’ interests in music and performing arts through a variety of groups, bands, and productions.
Set on a 68-acre campus in the northern part of Baltimore City, the school serves roughly 1000 students in three divisions: Lower School (K-Grade 5), Middle School (Grades 6-8), and Upper School (Grades 9-12). Facilities include separate buildings for each of the three divisions, an Upper School science building, an auditorium, and a shared dining hall. Athletic facilities include an arena and other gymnasiums, indoor pool, weight room, locker rooms, game and practice fields, tennis courts, and alpine tower. Gilman has a full-time faculty of nearly 140, and the average class size is 16 students. A strong coordinate program with two neighboring girls schools—Roland Park Country School and The Bryn Mawr School—provides students in the Upper School with a broad and comprehensive curriculum and with opportunities for coeducational classes on all three campuses.
Gilman School is an equal opportunity employer and educator who fully and actively supports equal access for all qualified applicants, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability status, Genetic Information or Testing, Family and Medical Leave, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
