Great work environment because of the people
Adjunct Professor, Department of Modern Languages (Current Employee) – La Mirada, CA – April 11, 2015
As an adjunct professor in French I teach one hour Monday through Thursday. I have found my colleagues to be very helpful as I am learning how things are done. I have found my students to be highly motivated to learn to speak French. Typically we review in French and speak in French 80-90% of the time each class. The students come from various backgrounds, which enriches our classroom experience, and they have varying abilities in French. The management (administration) is encouraging and after giving broad guidelines allows us to pursue those guidelines. My co-workers and the office support staff are superb. They are encouraging and helpful. Working with them is always productive. The hardest part of the job is maintaining forward momentum with all of my students without boring the best or losing the slowest. The most enjoyable part of my job is watching a student realize that he or she understands what we are doing in class as we speak French. That happens every day with at least one of my students, so I am enjoying my work very much.
Constructive and friendly interpersonal relationships at all levels
