Pros: a lot of office time (rest time) in between teaching hours, free room and board (although i lived off campus in my own apt and have a food allergy), supervisor was always present and ready for questions, people could be counted on
Cons: since i was a teacher and still a student (grad student), i had to be present for everything else too: daily meetings, chapels, and other evening events.
I taught Com 101 (freshman speech) at Bob Jones University during the 2 years I worked on my Graduate Degree. My schedule involved teaching 3 sections of speech every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday as well as taking Graduate courses in Theater Arts on Tuesday and Thursday. I learned classroom management, creative learning strategies, and interpersonal – more... skills all while motivating students and communicating student-centered instructing. The supervisor for my job and teaching is extremely gifted academically and she prepared me for every one-on-one confrontation I may encounter. The other people that I worked with were amazing. Since we were all in education, we had one goal; show Christ to our students while teaching them how to live. The hardest part of the job was the time management. I was in several shows on stage so that took away my evening time at home. I taught all day and then would go straight to rehearsals. But the most enjoyable part was and still is when I run into my students or when I see how well they have progressed throughout the semester and that they have truly enjoyed themselves learning under me. Seeing them understand...wow! – less
