The Chalkboard

A Weekly Email for Students at the College of Education

The Chalkboard email is for current students in the UIC College of Education. Emails are sent weekly during the regular school year and monthly during the summer.

For individuals and families interested in hiring College of Education students

The College of Education is not in a position to coordinate the placement of our students to work in people’s homes, or to provide student services in exchange for field experience credit.

We do not post jobs for private tutors, at home teachers or teaching assistants for individuals and their families. We only post jobs on behalf of schools, businesses, or nonprofit organizations relevant to the study of education.

All our students have the ability to secure part-time employment as tutors or at home child-care providers, but this is something they must do on their own.

  • What type of opportunity are you submitting? * Required
    We do not accept job postings from private individuals for positions like babysitters, tutors, personal assistants, etc. Jobs must be from a verified school, business, or nonprofit organization. We only post research survey requests on behalf of students enrolled in the College of Education. If your submission doesn't fit in one of these categories, it might not be appropriate for the Chalkboard.

Please indicate the time frame you'd like your opportunity to remain posted. If you have an opportunity that is available year round, the Chalkboard email is not the right place for it. Contact with questions.
