The purpose of this narrative is to express my interest in the position of adjunct, part-time college instructor. I am interested in teaching courses related to basic adult education, criminal justice, communications, writing, vocational based training, and I will entertain other subjects as needed. The qualifications and professional knowledge I bring include but are not limited to:
I have created and taught courses including general presentations in communications as well as lessons in criminal justice. I have a passion for teaching and a desire to facilitate the learning process for students who seek to better themselves through the formal progression of education. I feel this can be accomplished by utilizing appropriate college facilities, resources, and educational technologies available which complement positive teaching and learning. I feel that as an adjunct educator with your facility, I can assist management and staff in a teaching position where I would be best suited.
As a law enforcement officer, I have been instrumental in educating law officers, students, and the general public for 20 years. I enjoy what I do and seek to exercise my skills teaching at the college level.
Chad W. Michael
I have authored lessons, taught classes, and conducted presentations on various subjects over the years. Recently I was invited to teach a criminal justice course in technical writing at the Yakima Valley College. I have a passion for teaching and educating students. I am working my way through a master's program in adult education at Colorado State University. I have expanded my career goals towards the teaching profession at the college / university level. Given my present status, this could be best accomplished in a part-time, adjunct capacity to include the online academic environment.
I have been actively working on my advanced education with emphasis on teaching adults since 2014. I receive updated information about current adult education and teaching strategies, models, and philosophies. I am required to engage in ongoing research, course development, and lesson implementation of topics related to adult education.
