Lee College hosts traveling career fair for nearly 300 middle & high school students

BAYTOWN, TX – Nearly 300 middle and high school students from throughout the Houston region recently gathered at Lee College for the College and Career Roadshow, a unique one-day conference where students were encouraged to share their dreams for the future and given tools to start making those dreams a reality.

Students participate in an icebreaker at the College and Career Roadshow at Lee College.
Facilitators with leadership training company Paradigm Shift lead students through an icebreaker activity Friday, Jan. 20, 2017, at the College and Career Roadshow hosted at Lee College. Nearly 300 students from across the Houston region gathered on campus for the one-day traveling conference, which focuses on preparing middle and high school students for college and career success.

Presented by leadership training and development company Paradigm Shift and its partners, the roadshow is a traveling college and career fair that includes everything from motivational speakers and success seminars to ACT college readiness exam prep sessions, team-building activities, business leadership panels and interview and resume workshops. Students also had the opportunity to take a campus tour and learn more about all that Lee College has to offer.

After starting their day with games and icebreakers at the Performing Arts Center, the students were divided into two groups according to grade level and taken through workshops and panel discussions to explore what it means to be a leader; how to succeed in college and build a career; how to identify and set goals for the future; how to ace the ACT; and more.

“Our main goal is to get students excited and prepared for post-secondary education or careers,” said Rachel Mayo, conferences and special event coordinator for Paradigm Shift. “We want students who might not otherwise get this kind of opportunity to know they’re not limited in what they can do. The students love it; our facilitators do a great job of making it a safe space to feel, share and learn.”

Students traveled from as far away as Galveston and beyond to attend the roadshow at Lee College. To make the event more accessible for students in the college service area, the Student and Career Employment Office worked with the Lee College Foundation and Patients ER to provide scholarships to about 100 local youths.

Lee College offers more than 100 associate degree and certificate programs, as well as non-credit workforce and community education courses, that prepare its diverse student body for advanced higher education; successful entry into the workforce; and a variety of in-demand careers. With the main campus and McNair Center located in Baytown, Texas, and a satellite education center in nearby South Liberty County, the college serves a geographic area of more than 220,000 residents that includes 14 independent school districts.

Interested candidates are invited to discuss available part-time teaching opportunities at the Adjunct Job Fair, to be held from 5-7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 17, in the Rundell Hall Conference Center on campus.

Adjunct instructors are needed to teach day, evening and/or weekend classes in a wide range of fields across the Academic Division, Applied Sciences Division and Center for Workforce and Community Education — from government, psychology, and art appreciation to pipefitting, millwrighting, and electrical.

Those who want to teach academic courses like English, history, and mathematics must have a master’s degree and 18 graduate hours in the discipline being taught.

LCHC looking for adjuncts to teach courses part-time

Job fair on Oct. 27 to find instructors for multiple disciplines in Huntsville & Navasota units

HUNTSVILLE, TX – With a growing enrollment of more than 1,200 incarcerated students pursuing associate degrees and certificates, the Lee College Huntsville Center is looking for new adjunct faculty to teach classes part-time at Texas Department of Criminal Justice units in both Huntsville and Navasota.

Potential instructors are invited to attend the Huntsville Job Fair to be held from 5-7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 27, at the Lee College Huntsville Center office, located at 168-C Col. Etheredge Blvd. Participants should bring their resumes to the fair to provide to human resources staff and current faculty, who will be available to answer questions and share insights from their own experiences in the classroom.

One of the oldest and largest prison education programs in the United States, the Lee College Huntsville Center needs adjunct instructors for a variety of fields, including: business management, biology, geology, natural sciences, developmental English and writing, development math, standard math, speech and art. Adjuncts will be assigned to teach students at the Eastham, Ellis, Estelle, Ferguson, Holliday, Huntsville and Wynne units in Huntsville, as well as the Luther and Pack units in Navasota.

Adjuncts who teach academic courses must have a master’s degree and 18 graduate hours in the discipline being taught. The positions are especially ideal for retired educators and professionals who want to continue using their skills and expertise to make a difference in their community. Data has shown that inmates who complete two years of college behind bars are significantly less likely to return to prison.

“It’s a good experience to see someone turn their life around through education,” said Ray Wright, a retired high school math teacher and administrator who has served as an adjunct instructor for the Lee College Huntsville Center for the last 7 years. “These students have excelled beyond my expectations; they are well-behaved and hungry for information, and they really want to be there. Education can help them get employment when they leave prison and be successful – something many of them have never been.”

For more information about working as an adjunct instructor with the Lee College Huntsville Center or the upcoming Huntsville Job Fair, contact the Office of Human Resources at 281.425.6875 or hr@lee.edu.
