EdAdvance Looking for Teachers

Would you be interested in teaching a class for our local adult-education program? I act as a Site Coordinator for Northwest Connecticut’s Region 1’s EdAdvance program, and I am currently planning our Fall 2022 course offerings. Would you be interested in teaching an Intro to Creating a Small Business or Intro to Moving from an Operational Manager to a Strategic Leader Class — or a similar class — for adult students ages 18+? We are doing online and in-person classes. It sounds like a wonderful subject for students to learn more about. Teaching a class can also a great opportunity to broaden the instructor’s audience and to emphasize one’s brand. I enclose a very brief Course Proposal Form to submit along with a brief bio/syllabus to that effect for your completion at your earliest convenience. We pay our instructors $20/hour.

Fall 2022 non-credit enrichment online classes can be held anytime — daytime, evening, and weekends. Many of our online courses are held via Zoom (either the instructor’s own Zoom account or a Zoom account that our agency can provide you that comes with a moderator to handle the technical stuff).

In-person classes can be held at any of our many sites that range from Falls Village to Waterbury (chances are, one of our sites is near you). Depending on the site’s schedule, in-person classes are held Mondays through Thursdays, between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. All classes are weekly and can be scheduled anytime between October 2022 and mid-December 2022, excluding holidays. Classes are generally two hours maximum. The number of classes in a course can range from one class to a total five maximum; if a second-level course to the subject is desired, we can develop that as well.

We are putting together courses for the Fall 2022 semester in coming months. Many returning instructors will soon be filling up available time slots and classrooms. We would like to fit in your class. Please be sure to submit the completed very brief Course Proposal Form at your earliest convenience if you are interested. EdAdvance reaches about 81,000 households, and nearly double the amount of individuals, and it would be great to have such a class among our courses offered. Our courses have been acclaimed by several local media, including most recently by The Republican-American (Waterbury, CT).

If you have any questions, please reach out to me at the below contact information.

I hope you will consider doing a class. I look forward to being in touch. I appreciate your kind consideration. Please let me know if you have any questions and I will be glad to assist.

Thank you,
Noel Ambery II
Site Coordinator
Region 1/Falls Village
