Description

We have a job opening for the Choral Director at Gattis Middle School in Clovis, NM. Gattis Middle School is a 6-8 middle school that has been open for six years. The program has 5 choirs broken into 6 class periods: 6th Grade Honor Choir, 6th Grade Cadet Choir (2 periods), Concert Women's Choir, Men's Chorale (auditioned group 7-8 grade), and Women's Chorale (auditioned group 7-8 grade). The GMS Choirs earned "Superior" ratings at the 2018 and 2019 SENMMEA Choral Large Group Music Performance Assessments. They also earned "Outstanding" ratings at the Greater Southwest Music Festival and the Mixed Chorale won "Best in Class" in 2018. This year, the program is running around 130 students, but has been as large as 200 students in years past. Because the school is new, the choir dresses and tuxedos are all new and in good condition. The classroom has two upright pianos , a grand piano, and a full set of choral risers. We are looking for someone with an upbeat personality and ability to run a well-managed, engaged classroom. You would be part of a choral program with five other teachers who meet weekly to support and grow our programs together. You will also receive support from the CHSFA Choral Director a couple of days a week. This position starts at a base salary of $36,100 for a Bachelors degree with no teaching experience (Level 1 Teacher). Added to that base pay, there is a stipend of $1,700 for being a Vocal Music Instructor. Total salary for a first year teacher with Bachelors degree would be $37,800. ​After a period of three years, ​you would be eligible to move to Level 2 which raises the base salary to $44,000, and after six years you would be eligible, with a Masters degree, to move to Level 3 which starts at a base salary of $54,000.​ Adjustments to the base salary can be made dependent upon teaching experience and licensure level of qualified candidates. (There is a proposal on file with the PED to raise the base pay for Level 1 teachers to $40,000, with similar increases to Level 2 and 3 base salaries.)
