    UPDATE JANUARY 25, 2022:
    The San Francisco Shakespeare Festival is interested in creating long-term relationships with skilled, compassionate educators!

    Rather than apply to a specific job, we are looking to add to our pool of TAs, all of whom will receive information about specific gigs as they arise. These programs include (but are not limited to) Winter/Spring/Fall Residencies and Bay Area Summer Shakespeare Camps. More information on our upcoming programming can be found at www.sfshakes.org/education

    We are seeking resumes and letters of interest from Bay Area-based Teaching Artists. Please include your past teaching and theatre experience, as well as your teaching philosophy, values, and approach. Please send via email to educationleadership@sfshakes.org. BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and disabled Teaching Artists are encouraged to apply.

    Pay Structure:
    Current rates are $35/hour for teaching and day-of prep, and $31/hour for training, pre-planning, and post-program review & reflection.

    SF Shakes is committed to paying for all hours worked, including prep time.

    About SF Shakes’ Education Program:

    SF Shakes has a 30-year history of providing theatre education for the Bay Area. A year ago, we restructured our education department, going from a two person team to a workgroup with nine current members. This collective approach to decision making and implementation has improved working conditions and the experience we can offer our TAs. We create fun and meaningful programming for our students, both virtually and, ever increasingly, in person.

    SF Shakes approaches classroom management with a sense of empathy, curiosity, and play. We are excited to collaborate with open-minded and open-hearted Teaching Artists who are dedicated to building equitable educational environments with a passion for the art of theatre.

    For more information about the SF Shakes’ Education Program, check out the Values, Ethics, and Aesthetics document the workgroup created together last year. 

    The Education Workgroup: Bidalia Albanese, Rebecca Ennals, Evan Held, Charlie Lavaroni, Marie Morley, Rainier Pearl-Styles, Ayelet Schrek, Michaela Stewart, Brittany Villars
