I am currently a senior in my university’s music education program, and am looking forward to my last year of music education classes and student teaching. But I have also started considering where I’d like to apply to work, once I’ve graduated. Unlike many of my classmates, I don’t have my heart set on teaching in any state in particular. I’m open to moving almost anywhere (which I am aware could mean a bit of extra work to get my teaching license accepted during the first year of employment).
Are there any resources out there for learning about how music programs are fairing in each state?
Do you have any recommendations for researching the approach of school district towards their music programs?
Thanks in advance for the help!
