    We have an opening for a Middle School Choral Director for Gattis Middle School (6th-8th grades) in Clovis, NM. Gattis is a new school that has been open for four years. The school was outfitted with all new equipment and uniforms for the program. The JV and Varsity groups all have formal uniforms which include dresses for the young ladies and full tuxedos for the gentlemen. There are also funds to pay for accompanists for each concert cycle. Within this program we offer a 6th grade Honor Choir (40 singers, previous elementary experience), JV Women's Choir (7th and 8th grade, 60 singers), Varsity Women's Choir (all auditioned, 45 singers), Varsity Men's Choir (7th and 8th grade, 35 members) and two periods of 6th grade Beginning Choir (60-70 singers, split between two periods) - (all numbers are estimates based on end of year enrollment). The program has seen consistent growth in both numbers and quality over the past four years. The administration is very supportive and there is a strong collaboration among the other choral directors in the district. This position starts at a base salary of $34,100 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 Middle School Choral Director. Additionally, Clovis is now offering a signing bonus of $1,500 per year for the first three years you work in Clovis (paid as part of your salary). Total salary for a first year teacher with Bachelors degree would be approximately $37,300. ​After a period of three years, ​you would be eligible to move to Level 2 which raises the base salary to $40,000, and after six years you would be eligible, with a Masters degree, to move to Level 3 which starts at a base salary of $50,000.​ Those who already have advanced degrees and teaching experience could start at Level 2 or Level 3. Applicants need to visit www.clovis-schools.org, click on "Job Openings", click on the "FastTrack" button, and look for the ​"Mid Choir" for Gattis Middle School.​
