Many positives about Bradford
Teacher (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – November 30, 2015
I generally teach 3 or 4 classes per semester, each semester lasting eight weeks. Sometimes I get fewer hours, and occasionally there are no classes for me to teach. I choose the class materials and run courses in Composition. Over 23 years of teaching I have learned more than would easily fit here in terms of classroom management, student relations, teaching styles and so on. The management at Bradford is highly professional. My co-workers are universally qualified and creative within their fields of expertise, and , in my experience, supportive of each other in terms of work. The hardest part of the job is the uncertainty of upcoming schedules from semester to semester, for those of us who work part-time. The most enjoyable part of the job is sensing student progress and achievement, and being told every now and then that I've made a positive difference for them.
We get some excellent free food from the Culinary School, though on an irregular basis. Small campus area makes walking easy to do between classes.
Sometimes long "break times" between classes, over an hour or two. No health care or other benefits for part-timers.
