ArtsCore helps first year teachers step into the world of teaching and arts integration by pairing them with coaches from ArtsCore’s partner schools. First year teachers and their coaches are encouraged to attend ArtsCore professional development events outside of the classroom to broaden their teaching strategies.
Teachers in their 2nd-5th year of teaching are invited to participate in Collaborative at the Paine, a 9 day professional development and networking opportunity held at the Paine Art Center and Gardens throughout the school year.
ArtsCore offers a variety of opportunities for veteran teachers to build and showcase their teaching talents. Veteran teachers are invited to act as mentors, participate in professional development opportunities, present at events, and more.
Licensed Teachers who have successfully completed ArtsCore Collaborative at the Paine have earned the title, “Collaborative Alumni.” Alumni are invited to share and strengthen their professional skills by acting as mentors for new teachers, presenters at ArtsCore events, and more. ArtsCore also provides networking groups and events for alumni to stay engaged with their Collaborative cohort and discover new leadership opportunities.
