GED Teachers

The GED test is composed of four individual tests. Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science. We need teachers who are interested in teaching one or more subjects. 

Schedule: Flexible! We can make almost anything work. Day Classes. Night Classes. We would prefer a schedule of at least two class times a week. Generally Social Studies and Science is 6-10 weeks long, depending on how much time the teacher feels they need. Math and Language Arts generally are longer classes, as the tests are longer. Math can be broken down into two classes, a beginning math and intermediate math, if necessary. The Math class may also include Riverland Students who need college prep math. Teachers get a minimum of 20 minutes of prep time for every hour of teaching time. We can also provide additional prep time before class for new teachers to understand what needs to be covered and create lessons. We also have this posted as a Monday-Thursday (with Friday option) for someone looking for a >30 hour teaching opportunity.

Commitment: The length of your class 

Curriculum: We have several options; teachers are free to choose what they would like to use. Info from ged.com: https://ged.com/educators_admins/teaching/

Delivery: In person with potential live "hyflex" for students in other communities

What you will be doing: We are excited to get back to offering in-person instruction for GED students. The number of students in a class have will be determined once we have the schedule created by the teacher and advertise.
