The timeline for this role runs from November 2021 through May 2022.

Substitute Teaching Artists successfully support Teaching Artists & Site Coordinators or lead in implementing CAN programming (depending on the need of the day), during which youth will build storytelling skills (incorporating body, voice, and ensemble) and community. Pay for Substitute Teaching Artists is $20/hr.

Job Description

Curriculum will be provided for Substitute Teaching Artists. In most cases, the staffer who usually serves as the ongoing Supporting Teaching Artist will lead the class in the absence of the Teaching Artist & Site Coordinator. If there is a case where the Substitute Teaching Artist will need to lead the class, a short report form would need to be completed and shared with the Teaching Artist & Site Coordinator.
