Spence’s Performing Arts Department seeks an accomplished and visionary educator to join the school’s music program. Understanding the importance, nature, scope, and impact of our events and performances within the community, the Music Teacher will work with fellow Performing Arts colleagues to fulfill our mission of nurturing imagination and self-expression in a collaborative environment.
