Subject: Summer School Job Opening at Morris HS.

Good morning,

My name is Amber Sharp, and I work for Morris Community High School. I schedule all of our summer driver education. 

I was wondering if you knew of anyone who would be interested in teaching summer driver education BTW. 

The information below is a little of what I have sent out, along with dates and times I have available.


The vehicle schedules align perfectly with the dates and hours that twelve students have reserved for themselves. Due to cars going out back-to-back throughout the summer, I have no flexibility to adjust the times or dates.


First Session: 

Dates: June  3, 5, 7, 10, 12, 14, 17, 18, 21, 24, 26, 28

June Times: 2:00pm -  5:00pm   (6 students; 2 per hour)


Second Session:

Dates: July 8, 10, 12, 15, 17, 19, 22, 23, 24, 29, 31, & Aug. 2

July Times: 9:00am - Noon  (6 students; 2 per hour) 


It doesn't have to be the same instructor for all three hours or for the duration of both months.  I just want to get what we have offered to students covered. 



Thank you for your time. 

Amber Sharp
