Deadline extended! You have until June 13 to apply to become a Montana Teacher Leader in the ArtsAugust 4-10, 2019 (Pablo), plus ongoing online component throughout the 2019-2020 school year and April 2020 Capstone weekend (Livingston)
This incredible year-long program develops teacher leaders who can support other teachers statewide in integrating the arts into their classrooms. We are currently recruiting 18 educators to join the 36 educators who have previously completed the Montana Teacher Leaders in the Arts program. This initiative supports training cohorts of educators to serve as coaches, mentors, and advocates in their schools and communities for an arts-integrated approach to teaching and learning. The program consists of a week-long residency at the Salish Kootenai College, completion of a field project (including a $300 materials reimbursement for their projects), and a final Capstone weekend in Livingston, MT in April 2020. Funded by an NEA Artworks Grant and a partnership between the Montana Office of Public Instruction (OPI) and the Montana Arts Council (MAC), this program is in the 4th year of providing high-quality professional learning and leadership for teachers across Montana.
