Music, Art, Dance and Drama Teachers Meet at USM


I’m so excited to be involved in such a creative group of arts educators in Maine.  They come from all regions in the State to work on the Maine Arts Assessment Initiative, whose mission is

“Creating an environment in Maine where quality assessment in arts education is an integral part of the work all arts educators do to deepen student learning in the Arts“.


All are Teacher Leaders for the MAAI, and all are committed to improving teaching and learning in the arts in their own classrooms.  So, they have designed workshop presentations that will be featured at the Maine Arts Commission’s Maine International Conference on the Arts at the University of Maine at Orono on October 24, 2013.  For more information, or to register, click here. 

Each Teacher Leader will present at the international conference, and then take their workshops back to their regions and present for their school districts and others.  Please join us for some dynamic professional development, designed by our practicing arts teachers!          — Catherine
