PMEA Mentors Needed
Have you been a music educator for three or more years? Do you enjoy new challenges and solving problems? Are you passionate about teaching and committed to lifelong learning in the field of music education? Do you have confidence in your instructional skills and strong interpersonal skills? These are all qualities of a good mentor and the PMEA Mentor Program could use your help.
The PMEA Mentor Program continues to assist beginning music educators and experienced music educators whose jobs have changed or who need a boost. The program is in need of mentors from all educational levels and types of music programs. PMEA will be offering a mentor training webinar to any PMEA member interested in serving as a mentor, or learning more about the program.

The topic for September is K-8 General Music. Please submit any questions, large or small, on the topic of General Music to Sharon Potter at email@example.com.
