Got a Special Talent? Teach an Adult Ed Course, Earn Cash
Milford Adult Ed Program In Search of New Course Instructors for Spring 2023
Do you have a special talent you’d like to share with others – and earn some extra cash at the same time? In an effort to expand the enrichment course offerings in our Milford Adult Ed program, the staff continues to focus on bringing in new courses to keep the program fresh. Some new additions that were immediately ‘sold out’ this fall were Basketweaving, Professional Presentation Skills, the American Revolution & Milford, to name a few. As we gear up for the Spring 2023 session, we believe the talent right in our own community is rich and interesting. Proposals for new courses are welcome via the district’s online Got A Special Talent? collection form. The link can also be found on the MPS district website at www.milforded.org (select the Adult Education tab at the top). Questions also may be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
