My name is Beth and I am the Talent Recruiter at KIPP St. Louis. I am writing because we have an immediate opening for a middle school art teacher at KIPP Inspire Academy in St. Louis. KIPP is an open enrollment college preparatory public charter school system dedicated to preparing students in underserved communities for success in college and in life.
I thought I would reach out to you in hopes that you might be able to share this opportunity with any excellent art educators in your network who may be a good fit. My mom, who is also an art teacher, has been active in Wisconsin’s Art Education Association, and I know what a great resource and network the association can be.
Thanks in advance for forwarding this to anyone you think might be interested.
