High autonomy, casual dress atmosphere yet tough professional standards
Older Adult Instructor Part Time (Current Employee), Glendora, CaliforniaAugust 7, 2012
Pros: professional appreaciation, autonomy, creative freedom, room for intellectual growth, great supervisor, good retirement benefits, freindly relationship with both support and superiors, easy work environment
Cons: no ability to become full time, no health insurance, uncertain financial environment makes future uncertain
A typical day at work : Drive to a Skilled nursing facility and teach older adults in varied level of disability subjects such as health science events, personal medication management, nurtrition for older adults, healthcare self advocacy and memory retention skills

I learned to design all my own curricula and syllabi, and create all my own learning – more... tools. I manage my own time, monitor student advancement and all the paperwork associated with my class. I also register all students at the site, maintain all enrollment data and submit all data to administration. I participate twice a year in department meetings, and more often as curriculum needs dictate

I operate within the Activities Department at the facility where I teach, and see co- workers every day I teach at the facility. I interface with every department of the skilled nursing facility from nursing to housekeeping to adminsistration. I need the cooperation of of all regular staff in order to teach my classes and I have learned how to acheive that cooperation and create Ad Hoc teams in order to teach my classes effectivly

I also have co-workers at the college, my supervisor, clerical support staff, and of course the Dean of my department. I see these individuals on a semi weekly basis, and have enjoyed a smooth working relationship with them for nearly 20 years

The hardest part of my job is the State budget crisis! My department has been reduced dramatically, and I am in the process of restructuring my courses for an entirely different venue. I will no longer be able to teach in skilled nursing facilities. I look forward to the challenge of teaching completely new courses to a new student body, but will miss the facilityI have been working in as well as the students

The most enjoyable part of the job is designing curricula and actually teaching that which I have created, and seeing the benefits effects of that information to change the lives of my students for the better. I also enjoy meeting with and working with new staff, and creating a "Team" spirit with staff for the betterment of the students. I like feeling that I am part of the Skilled nursing home team, and will miss that relationship too. – less
