It is a part-time position (40%), consisting of 16-18 hours per week. Candidates should possess an elementary teaching degree or a degree in art, have a passion for art, and be able to help students grow in their love and appreciation for art. It is preferred that the candidate have some experience teaching, and have, or be able to obtain, a valid Tennessee teaching license.
