We're glad to see our neighbors in Springfield supporting the arts in ALL schools! Know anyone who might be interested?

We're glad to see our neighbors in Springfield supporting the arts in ALL schools! Know anyone who might be interested?

We are very excited to share the great news that Springfield Public Schools - Massachusetts and the Springfield School Committee voted to provide district funding to hire a visual art AND music teacher in EVERY elementary, middle and high school in Springfield Public Schools this fall!

This means that every student in the district will have a sequential program of instruction in art and music content. With that, we are in the process of gathering resumes and letters of interest for what we expect will be a banner year in the hiring of art/music educators, especially at the elementary level.

APPLY NOW! When applying for positions, it will be important to include a letter of interest, stating your preferences and highlighting your abilities, and of course, your experience and desire to work with urban youth.
