Become a Community Education
Instructor at Modesto Junior College
Community Education is always looking for instructors that have a desire to share their skills and knowledge with others. If you feel you have something that would be of interest to others in our community, think about becoming an instructor for MJC Community Education. We do not require you to have a degree in order to teach one of our courses. You must, of course, have the ability to present a quality class, work with students, and have expert knowledge and skill your subject.
There are many topics you could choose from - arts and crafts, sewing, music, science, business, personal growth, self-help, active classes, or a multitude of topics of interest to our community. Anyone that teaches a children's class (under 18 years old) must be fingerprinted with a background check. Community Education will reimburse you for this after you have been hired by our office.
Our office offers not-for-credit classes, which means our office does not receive any state or federal funding for any of our courses, so all expenses of the department are funded through the course fees. If your proposal is accepted, a Community Education Specialist will work with you to create a quality class.
Sound Interesting? Do you have an idea or two of something you would like to teach others? Click on the link below and fill in the fields to submit a proposed course. Be sure to read all of the information before filling out the course proposal form.
If you have taught for MJC Community Education in the past, you will be contacted approximately 3 months before the semester begins to find out if you are interested in teaching your previous classes. There are many things that determine if we offer a class, one is the availability of rooms. We submit our room requests as the classes come in, so there is a chance that we would not be able to offer your class due to a lack of space.
If you have new or additional classes that you would like to propose, either fill out the Course Proposal form that is linked below, contact Angela Vizcarra by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone her at 575-6473.
