This is my sweet spot! I’m thrilled about the potential of being able to bring my skills to the team! I love working within a dynamic... see more

Welcome to “Adjunct World”, buckle up it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
When I decided that I wanted to teach at the college level I had zero idea of the world I would be walking into. While I love teaching, I do not love the “academic culture” that has confronted me throughout my journey to find a fulltime teaching position.
After attempting to apply for fulltime positions (and actually be considered for any of them) my desire to teach fulltime... see more

Every day I check my email and see emails stating “We appreciate your interest but are passing...” or “Thank you for applying...we will not be moving forward...” - even more disappointing is when I actually interview (in person, Phone, video), sometimes more than once - and they seem like they went well...a few I honestly felt I was about to receive an offer right then..the conversation is smooth, without any long pauses and it’s left with a... see more
