Office Assistant (TRIO Programs) (Former Employee) – Clarkston, GA – November 14, 2017
This was a start of learning how it is to work in a higher education environment. Being a student and employed takes a lot of balance. The workplace had a lot of diversity, which the campus is in a well diverse location. The hardest part was trying to learn how to operate as an assistant and grow in my skills. I loved working alone since it gave me time to absorb the task at hand.
Mentor Program (Current Employee) – Georgia – March 16, 2017
The school provides a great working environment with other students and diversity. Management very helpful. Diversity culture and different age brackets. The most enjoyable part of the job is the different events that cater to the diverse population.
Georgia Perimeter College was a great place to work. They allowed independence but responsibility and accountability was encouraged. Appreciated the opportunity to be a part of this educational institution for the length of time there.
Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee) – Dunwoody, GA – January 4, 2017
I typically taught two classes per semester, the same course, in the evenings after teaching high school all day. The adult students were typically those returning to school after some time and most came with some degree of Math anxiety. It was extremely rewarding to be able to help them relieve that anxiety and be successful in the course they were attending.
Since I taught evenings, it was difficult to get much support of any kind from the department administration. Next to no help was afforded to me the last semester when a new textbook was implemented with a strong online portion. The publisher itself had not even tested that component. That confirmed my decision to resign.
Impact adults returning to Math classes
Insufficient pay & little support from the department administration
Assistant Soccer Coach (Former Employee) – Clarkston, GA – November 14, 2016
Great place to work due to diversity. Students are given the opportunity to grow both educationally and athletically. Their athletics program is the best for student athletes who want to grown in soccer.
