Brazosport College is currently seeking retired industry personnel to serve as instructors for non-credit or credit courses on a part-time or full-time basis.  If you have expertise in MOD, process operations, instrumentation technology, electrical, pipefitting, millwright, welding or professional development areas, come and join the Brazosport College instructional team.  The schedules are flexible, facilities and labs are state of the art and equipment is top notch.

Training for Brazosport College has proven to be a rewarding experience for previous retirees as expressed by Dow retiree Ellroy Fox, “I went to work as a way to stay active and keep my mind engaged, and I found instructing and sharing my work experiences with students to be very rewarding.

“The part-time schedule has been nice, in that I still have the extra time to go and do the things I like. Of course, the extra spending money has been great, but meeting all the new people and instructors has also been a good experience. Also, seeing everyone still at the plants has helped me keep up to date on the industry,” said Fox.
