The most enjoyable part of the job is the development of teacher/student rapport. Each semester starts the process again. This type of arrangement is perfect for my demeanor. Managers at NTC encourage adjunct involvement in the many extra curricular activities and happening on campus, but, these are not mandatory; teachers can pick and choose without feeling obligated to take on more than what is comfortable to balance school, work, and family life. The beauty of this position--having done it for almost ten years--is that one can fly under the radar without intervention from middle and upper level managers. The most difficult part of the job is maintaining cash flow between terms.
