Three Summit Public Schools music teachers will present workshops at the New Jersey Music Educators Association State Conference.
Tom Maliszewski, supervisor of the Summit Public Schools’ Music, Fine, and Performing Arts Department; Francois Suhr, vocal music teacher at Franklin and Washington schools; and Don King, music teacher at Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School, will present workshops at the annual conference, which will be held at the Hilton East Brunswick Hotel from February 23-25. The Summit teachers will present on February 25 during the conference’s “Collegiate Academy.”
They will co-present a morning workshop “Transitioning From Music Student to Music Teacher,” which will provide practical information for future and novice music educators.
“Both Mr. Suhr and Mr. King are first year music teachers, and it is quite an honor for them and for Summit to be presenting a workshop at the NJMEA annual conference,” said Mr. Maliszewski.
Later in the day, Mr. Maliszewski, along with the music supervisors from South Brunswick and East Brunswick schools, will present “How to Land Your First Job: Advice From The Hiring Committee.” In this workshop, the supervisors will lend their expertise and advice on preparing music teachers for the job search.
