- ELI Counselors
ESLI Counselors are fully involved in all aspects of the Summer ESL Institute and the program is very demanding of their time, talents, and energy. It is designed as an introduction to the teaching profession, especially in the private boarding school environment, with a combination of responsibilities that include teaching, coaching, and residential life. Counselors work with the English as a Second Language Institute participants during the academic day and also with the students attending the Performing Arts Institute during campus events, residential life settings, and daily activities.
Responsibilities vary, depending on the abilities and interests of the counselors and the needs of Summer at Sem. Counselors typically assist a master teacher in the classroom, help to supervise and lead organized sports, visual arts offerings, student activities, along with social and extracurricular events. All counselors become involved with residential life, sharing daily supervisory responsibilities. Counselors live in dormitory rooms in the midst of the students’ rooms and assist in supervising the dorms under the guidance of experienced dorm leaders. Each counselor serves as an advisor to a small group of students. Weekend activities are organized both on and off campus. Counselors are expected to attend all weekend trips and activities along with all campus meals. Counselors must be willing and able to work up to seven days a week. It is clear that the demands on the time and talents of the counselors are great, yet it remains a very rewarding experience for all involved. Applications are accepted from undergraduates who, as a minimum, will have completed their freshman year by the upcoming summer, and recent college graduates. An applicant must have a strong academic record and the maturity and work ethic to succeed in a rigorous and demanding position. Academic background and personal experience are important in the selection of counselors. Also essential is the ability to relate well to others, especially adolescents aged 12-18 in large international population.
Summer at Sem appoints approximately 10 ESL counselors each summer. Salary is based on experience and housing and meals are provided. Candidates should submit all materials as soon as possible. Regardless of the application deadline, employment offers will be made on a rolling basis. An application will not be considered until all materials, including transcripts and recommendations, have been received by the Summer at Sem office. The complete application consists of an application, resume, cover letter or personal statement, official college transcript – minimum GPA of 3.0: two letters of recommendation from either employers, job supervisors, or those well acquainted with the quality of applicant’s academic work. Please attach application materials to the online application or email Gayle Sekel, Director of Summer Programs at Gsekel@wyomingseminary.org. Counselors will report for training and orientation on Monday, July 10, 2017 and complete their employment duties on Monday, August 14, 2017.Read more
- Performing Arts Institute
PERFORMING ARTS INSTITUTE
Conductors join us on a rotating basis, thereby offering students exposure to the diverse experience, training, interpretation, and national musical traditions of each conductor. A conductor typically is at PAI for one week, with daily rehearsals culminating in a weekend performance. Conductors are hired to direct Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Institute Chorus, Masterworks Chorale and Jazz Band.
PAI faculty are required to arrive on campus July 8, 2017 and will depart July 30, 2017.
Many symphony orchestras and professional choirs sponsor side-by-side programs, typically lasting for a three-hour rehearsal. Similarly, students at PAI benefit from over six contact hours per day with their teachers. It is the unusually large amount of time that our students are exposed to high caliber professionals that makes the side-by-side experience at PAI so profound.
The majority of our faculty and conductors at the Performing Arts Institute have been working together each summer for a number of years. They continue their association with each other for two reasons: their respect for each other and a shared passion for teaching. The faculty currently performs with symphony orchestras and/or teaches at universities and conservatories. They have trained at The Juilliard School, The Curtis Institute of Music, Eastman School of Music, Yale and The Royal Academy of Music (England), to name a few.
Throughout the summer, teachers perform in recitals, coach chamber groups, and play side-by-side with students in large ensembles. This extensive contact provides students with excellent professional role models. These talented teachers are not only valuable resources; they become lasting friends and mentors who help guide students’ careers.
