Adjunct Lecturer - Initial Licensure for Elementary Music Education

Division: Academic Affairs
Department/Office: Education BA/BS

The St. Catherine University Initial Licensure Program for Elementary Education invites applications for Adjunct Lecturer positions for the 2022-2023 spring term.

We offer our K-6 licensure program at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Social Justice is a core principle embedded in education courses. Addressing the achievement gap and inequities in K-12 schools is essential to the mission of social justice for educators. St. Kate's teacher candidates will be challenged throughout the program to reflect upon ways they can implement culturally sustaining teaching practices and disrupt inequities in school systems and classrooms.
Every semester we may have opportunities for adjuncts to join us as we educate women to lead and influence.
