The Fall Symposium for First-Year Arts Educators is sponsored by the Iowa Model of Excellence Mentoring Program and the Iowa Alliance for Arts Education.

First-year teachers in the arts -- vocal, general and instrumental music as well as visual arts, speech, and drama are invited to attend along with their mentors.

You will have an opportunity to network with other first-year teachers as well as experienced veterans.

This event is free and lunch is provided for everyone in attendance. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, November 8.
