Becoming an Instructor

While many of our instructors are professionals, we actively search for people who have hobbies or a passion for something which can be developed as a class. We maintain a solid set of traditionally successful classes while continually researching and developing new offerings. We are always searching for new instructors who will share their talents with our community - a job skill, a craft, a foreign language, a performing art, a physical activity, or a home improvement technique. Diversity is the key to meeting the community's needs, so we are always open to fresh ideas for classes. Please complete the Instructor Class Proposal and return to the Waterford Community Education Department.
