Dear Friends -

I hope this note finds you well. It has been a wonderful year for Mike and me, full of friends, family, and art shows!

Since my post at the Brooklyn public school where I work is seasonal (September – June), I’m starting to look around for summer positions. If, after taking a look at the info below, you have an idea of someone who you think I should meet, please feel free to send me an email. I value your creative input!

One item not mentioned below: I hold an MS in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Bank Street College of Education.

Eleanor's Ideal Components of a Summer Job

1. Up to 30 hrs/wk
