Phase VII MALI Leaders Announced

June 13, 2017

Congrats!

CONGRATULATIONS to the 12 PK-12 Maine visual and performing arts educators and 6 teaching artists for stepping forward and taking on the role of “leader” in Maine arts education. The Maine Arts Leadership Initiative (MALI) is launching Phase VII!

Leaders will attend a 3-day summer institute at Thomas College Center for Innovation in Education and focus on their own learning; “teacher centered”. They will explore their own learning and over the next year share their learning using multiple medium. The Phase VII MALI planners are excited about this direction as they put together an agenda focused on growth mindset and hands-on engaged learning sessions.
