This came across my desk last week while I was out on jury duty (first time in my life that I was actually on a jury) and I thought it was worth mentioning simply because the arts are even more important  in rural areas than metropolitan areas…

Art forms include music, dance/movement, and the visual art of collage combined with literary arts. Artists who have experience with one of these art forms and  experience working with elementary grade levels should apply. These positions include paid training February – March of 2012 and consistent work throughout April – June of 2012 with possible extensions into later years.

  •  Knowledge of an art form (either music, dance/movement, or any visual art)
  • Willingness to follow a pre-designed outline of five classroom sessions
  • Classroom management skills for elementary grade levels
  • Adaptability to meet classroom teachers’ needs
