Seeking Employment in the Classroom? New Song Mission is seeking a lead teacher and a part-time tutor to serve on its 100-acre Brown County campus! Teaching at a children’s home has benefits well beyond traditional classroom instruction: low student-to-teacher ratios, integrating Christ into the classroom, and joining a close-knit team that provides highly personalized care to vulnerable kids are just a few. If you’re interested in joining their ministry team, please visit NewSongMission.org/employment.
