K-2 Music Teacher at Washington Primary School in Rocky Ford, CO
My name is Dean Rees, and I’ve had the pleasure of teaching at Washington Primary School K-2 in Rocky Ford, CO for the last 30 years. I have decided that this is the right time for me to retire and try my hand at some other interests.
I am writing this in the hope that you might consider applying for this position. I care very deeply about the children in my school and would like to make the opening known to people who would really care and do their best.
The music room is well stocked with printed music, pedagogical books, and Orff instruments including a good quality bass xylophone, a couple of contrabass bars, and several alto and soprano xylophones, glockenspiels, and metallophones. Even a bass metallophone! The staff is supportive and caring and works very hard for the children. There are various local amenities and events; I suggest looking at the link below. Otero Junior College in nearby La Junta provides inexpensive college credits and there is a music program there under the direction of Dr. James Lind.
I hope you will at least consider this opportunity and look into it. This could be a great chance to start or continue a rewarding and fulfilling career in music education at the primary level!
