always enjoy teaching but the rewards were too limited at this level
Adjunct Music Appreciation Instructor (Former Employee) – Havelock, NC – September 20, 2017
Teaching at the community college level in NC was challenging in that I met college freshmen and sophomores twice weekly, 90 minutes each class, but the students failed to examine the importance of this survey course as far as their college life goes. The pay was 29 an hour which seems good, but I was paid for contact hours only. Consequently, any teacher interested in instructing students at any community college level should not rely on the compensation to aid their financial security. Finally, I was assigned two classes for the semester, one during the day and the other in the evening, the evening starting class mid-semester and doubling time in class. That class did not make since less than 9 students signed up for it, so that hope of further job security disappeared suddenly and permanently.
