Carl Sandburg College is seeking enthusiastic and creative instructors to teach classes for its Kids on Campus summer program June 11-15 at Illini West High School. This event attracts several students each year from across the College’s district and offers classes in a variety of subjects to children in grades K-6.

Instructors are needed in many 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 consider supply costs in advance and submit their supply list to Linda Thomas, coordinator of the Branch Campus, 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 by 4 p.m. March 9 and will be considered on a first-come basis. Instructors who submit proposals will receive a response on or before March 23. Background checks are required for first-time KOC instructors if your course is selected. Course proposal forms can be downloaded here. Forms also are available at the Sandburg Branch Campus in Carthage.

To send proposal forms or for more information, contact Thomas at 217.357.3129 ext. 7243; by fax at 217.357.3512; or by email at
