We have fabulous resources on the KMEA website designed to help new music teachers. These resources are the result of a lot of hard work by the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Committee of KMEA.

New Teacher Handbook
Tons of useful advice, forms, dates, etc. posted by people who have "been there". This info is so good it is of value to any teacher, regardless of experience.

If you would like to have a mentor, someone you can call or e-mail when you need ideas or "help!!!", this is a great resource. It only takes a minute to sign up and it could be your "lifeline" for the school year. If you are a veteran music teacher, you can volunteer to be a mentor for someone else. Contact the KMEA Mentoring team to get started!
