We are always on the lookout for extraordinary, enthusiastic, qualified instructors for all subjects and for all ages K-12+. Our instructors are hired on a PART TIME, class by class basis and considered INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS.
We give preference to teachers who demonstrate excellent teaching skills and who are passionate about their subject. All instructors must also be in agreement with our statement of faith. (Please read our Statement of Faith here: https://www.extraordinaryeducation.org/faith-statement
) Teacher certification is not required.
Prospective instructors are asked to complete this NEW TEACHER INTEREST FORM. If we are in need of an instructor to offer a class in your field, we will contact you for an interview with our Director.
Following your interview, you will be responsible to submit A CLASS PROPOSAL FORM for EACH CLASS that that you would like to propose to teach. We begin accepting class proposals in DECEMBER for the following academic year. We must have class schedules and teachers in place in order to begin student registrations in MARCH.
If you would like to propose a CAMP or workshop, please use the Camp Proposal form. We also begin accepting summer camp proposals in DECEMBER for the following summer. We must have camp dates in place for sign ups to begin early in the spring. Camps and workshops can also take place at other times of the year, but sufficient lead time must be allowed for the approval process.
PLEASE NOTE: EE does not operate like a traditional "school". EE does not generally assign classes to teachers or hire teachers to teach specific classes. Teachers are responsible to determine what classes/camps they want to offer/propose to teach and what curriculum they want to use. Class/camp proposals are reviewed by our curriculum committee and will be approved if they meet our program needs. Class offerings may be limited by classroom space, student needs and interests, and a variety of other factors. There is NO GUARANTEE that a proposed class/camp will be approved or added to the schedule nor that any students will sign up for your class.

Instructors are responsible for designing their courses, choosing curriculum, selecting appropriate supplemental materials and acquiring supplies. (A supply/curriculum fee will be collected from students based on the Class Proposal information.)
K-12 Core subject/credit-earning courses should be designed to meet commonly held expectations for each grade/age level. The "What Your Child Needs to Know" series of books can be helpful in determining expectations. Please keep in mind that no ultimate list exists for all skills/knowledge at all grade levels, and that our families are not generally fans of "Common Core standards."
K-12 Enrichment courses of all types are suitable for our program and may be placed on the schedule. Classes should be designed based on the instructor's experience and the interests and needs of the target age group.
Dual Credit courses and instructors must also be approved by the college or university that will be issuing the credit. We currently have agreements with Lone Star College and LeTourneau University. Instructors are responsible for getting credentialed and getting their course approved by the institution.
