Do you have a passion for a particular subject or a skill that students in grades kindergarten through 6th grade would be interested in learning?  If so, this is a great opportunity for instructors to share their passions with students. Kids on Campus attracts many students every year from all across the Carl Sandburg College district.  Instructors are needed in many subject areas and are the key to the continued success of the program. Instructors are encouraged to submit proposals for any and all ideas they have an interest in teaching. The more creative and original the classes, the better! Teaching credentials are not required; however, expertise and enthusiasm for your subject is essential.

Instructor compensation is $20 per student per class. $3/student per class will be budgeted for supplies. The target class size is 5-12 students unless otherwise noted. For example, if you teach 5 classes of 7 students each, your compensation will be $700 and your supply budget $105 total. Instructors are asked to give consideration to supply costs in advance and submit their supply list to Linda Thomas one week before classes start in order to have supplies on hand for the start of the program.

Proposals can be submitted any time prior to 4 pm, Friday, January 25, 2019 and are considered on a first-come basis. The link to submit a course proposal may be found below.
