Outside Teacher Guidelines
Thank you for your interest in the Calvary Old Bridge Home Education Group (Calvary Old Bridge-HEG). We appreciate your desire to share your gifts and talents with our children. In order to equip you for this exciting opportunity, we would like to give you a glimpse of our vision and purpose.
Calvary Old Bridge-HEG is a ministry that is dedicated to supporting parents in their God-given role to educate their children. As the Word of God teaches parents, "You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up" (Deuteronomy 6:7).
Please understand that this task requires parent's full devotion, time, resources, patience, and guidance. To help parents meet these rigors of home education, Calvary Old Bridge-HEG assists in coordinating classes like the one you have offered to conduct. We have developed the following guidelines regarding the teaching of such courses, which we hope you will find beneficial as you consider applying to teach.
First, and most important, is that all who participate with us share our vision and direction that we have detailed above. You must be in agreement with our Statement of Faith. We ask that you complete a ministry application and background check form. These forms are available in the Calvary Old Bridge foyer near the Information Counter and also by clicking here. Please include a written recommendation from the pastor of your church and a current resume.
Second, is the practical issue of compensation. Please keep in mind that many homeschool families are struggling financially. Therefore, please use wisdom when setting your prices. We ask that you limit your classes to a maximum of 15 students per course. In addition, a reasonable book/supply fee may be charged.
Third, in order to promote the class through our newsletter, the class needs to be offered to Calvary Old Bridge-HEG members first.
Now that you have reviewed our vision and guidelines for these courses, we would love to hear from you, and see what the Lord has placed on your heart for this course. If you have any questions, we would be happy to speak with you. Please contact us at HEGCommunity@ccob.org
