Earn money while serving your community

The adult education department has seen a large influx of refugees and asylum seekers from Ukraine and Latin American countries who are fleeing war, persecution, and political upheaval. While we are eager to serve our new community members, we are experiencing a crippling shortage in our ESL faculty pool.

We are actively seeking dedicated instructors to work with our engaged, enthusiastic, and hard-working adult ESL students! Would you like to join a rapidly growing team of talented instructors and help non-native speakers to develop English language skills that will make a real difference in their everyday lives by enabling them to communicate, adjust to a new country and culture, and find jobs?

    If you are interested, or if you have questions, please reach out to Nina Rearden, Director of AE Faculty & Instruction, at ninarearden@triton.edu, (708) 456-0300 ext. 3880.
