Courses now offered at Mt. Si Senior Center

We are excited to announce our partnership with Mt. Si Senior Center to bring compelling and fascinating courses designed to focus on learning, growth, and fun to active seniors in the Snoqualmie Valley. Each quarter we will be offering a few classes at their location in North Bend, extending opportunities to explore hobbies and interests to the Mt. Si Senior Center community that serves adults in North Bend, Snoqualmie, Fall City, and surrounding areas.

Teaching for TELOS

TELOS is continually looking for experienced, enthusiastic instructors on a wide range of subjects. TELOS classes are held one day each week for eight weeks for a total of 12 hours/quarter. There are no textbooks, tests, papers, projects, or grades. TELOS students are enthusiastic and engaged learners. Compensation is based on Bellevue College Continuing Education’s rates for part-time/temporary instructors.
