Just back from a Summer Institute for Arts Education Teachers from all over Maine! A wonderful three days at Thomas College in Waterville, put on by the Maine Arts Leadership Initiative (MALI) was a rousing success. The New England Institute for Teacher Education partners with MALI to bring Art, Music, Dance and Drama teachers together for quality professional development in teacher leadership, assessment, creativity, STEAM and more. This will be the 7th year we have partnered, and the ripple effect, as these teachers return to their school districts to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, is far and wide. If you are an arts educator, you can apply to be a teacher leader next year. The networking alone is a great way to connect and make friends all over Maine.
