Kids on Campus Instructors Sought - Carthage

Carl Sandburg College is seeking enthusiastic and creative instructors to teach classes for its Kids on Campus summer program June 8-12. This annual program attracts students in grades K-6 from across the College’s district and offers classes in a variety of subjects.

Instructors are needed across all subject areas and are encouraged to submit proposals for classes they have an interest in teaching. Teaching credentials are not required, but expertise and enthusiasm in a subject are essential.

Instructor compensation is $20 per student per class, with $3 per student per class budgeted for supplies. Instructors are asked to give consideration to supply costs in advance and submit their supply list one week before classes start in order to have supplies on hand for the start of the program. The target class size will be 5-12 students (unless otherwise noted), with three classes taught in the morning and two in the afternoon.

Proposals may be submitted until 4 p.m. Jan. 31 and will be considered in order of arrival. Instructors who submit proposals will receive a response on or before Feb. 7. Background checks are required for first-time Kids on Campus instructors if your course is selected. Course proposal forms can be downloaded at Kids on Campus Course Proposal Form. Forms also are available at the Sandburg Branch Campus in Carthage, 305 Sandburg Dr.
