Upcoming ELA (+Arts)

Montana Teacher Leaders in the Arts Now Accepting Applications! This initiative supports training cohorts of educators to serve as coaches, mentors, and advocates in their schools and communities through an arts-integrated approach to teaching and learning through a culturally sensitive lens. 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.
