Teaching Opportunity - Wekiva High School Laser/Photonics Academy

The Valencia College Division of Engineering, Computer Programming, and Technology was recently informed that one of the teachers in the Laser/Photonics Academy at Wekiva High School, which is a partnership with Valencia College, is not returning this fall. These leaves the academy students at Wekiva without a teacher for two classes. I am committed to helping Wekiva to replace the teacher before the 2014-2015 school year begins for Orange County Public Schools. Here is some information about the Academy:

The teacher for these two classes must have a masters degree in electrical engineering, electronics, or photonics. If a candidate is a certified teacher, they will be eligible for the full-time position at Wekiva HS and will teach two additional classes in electronics. If not, they can still teach there as a Valencia Dual Enrollment instructor, at a pay scale that is higher than the Valencia adjunct rate, for the two needed photonics courses – see here: (Page 5 shows dual enrollment salary in parentheses)

If you or someone that you know is interested in applying for this opportunity, the turn-around time will be fairly quick. Please let me know and I will facilitate the appropriate connections and process.

Please share this message with anyone you think might be qualified/interested.
