Park Slope School PS/MS 282 seeks a dynamic, engaging, and inspiring teacher to build a music program for students from grades K through 8.

Responsibilities include creating curricula for each class and grade, teaching classes on a rotating basis each day, and presenting performances periodically. Position starts January 12, 2015, and will be 8:20 AM to 2:40 PM on school days, 9 to noon on Saturdays, and pays $30 per hour. To apply, send a cover letter along with your resume in an email to: before December 12.

Muppets Most Wanted – Rated PG; 112 minutes    Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
