The Opportunity

StoryBook Theatre is currently seeking teachers for our Summer Theatre School Programming. We are looking for teachers to instruct children ages 6-12 in our one-week summer camp classes.

  • Classroom management including working with the teaching assistant(s) to maintain classroom focus and manners.
  • Other duties as required.
