Instructor of Mathematics (Current Employee) – Clarkston, GA – March 2, 2016
I have enjoyed teaching here. I was exposed to many different types of students, which helped me to expand my teaching methods. This school does a TON of research on scholarly teaching, which is very admirable. My co-workers are all friendly and upbeat.
The hardest part of the job is the workload (coupled with the pay). The amount of students in each class that are not at the expected level is overwhelming at times. Additionally, I often feel like I am teaching high school rather than college. It is rewarding to help my kids succeed, however I experienced a bit of shock in how the school handles it students verses how other colleges handle them. I find that they are not forced to take on as much responsibility or encounter the same rigor in materials as some students at other colleges.
The most enjoyable part of this job is being able to help the students succeed and understand. I love being able to be their mentor and give them advice to help them in college and in life. The students are some of the most energetic and joyful people that I've met! Many of them are eager to learn and have a sincere desire to be better. I enjoy having fridays off and the relaxed atmosphere of the job in general. It can be a lot of work, but the work isn't difficult.

Personal Counselor/Intern (Current Employee) – Dunwoody, GA – October 13, 2015
At Georgia Perimeter College I was afforded the opportunity to work with students of different backgrounds and cultures as a personal counselor. The personal counseling team is very professional, supportive, and come from different theoretical backgrounds so there is a lot of diversity and great opportunities to learn! They really give you the tools to succeed as a personal counselor. The hardest part of the job is trusting that you can take what you've learned and apply it within a personal counseling session, but the new counselor fear goes away with time.
