My Adjuct writing teacher position at Penn State University has fulfilled my teaching career because of the challenge of managing the classroom.
ESL Adjunct (Current Employee) – Abington, PA – July 12, 2015
Everyday is a great learning experience. Everytime I teach English 015 (Rhetorical Argument, writing), I adjust the lesson plan and add more exercises to teach basic essay writing. I find it a challenge but very rewarding because of the improvement of the students in their writing.
I have learned how to effectively manage the classroom, including the absenteeism, and assignment due dates, and students' concerns. Students understand the importance of attending the class on-time, and turning in their assignments on-time.
My manager is great because he responds to me immediately concerning my questions.
A typical teaching day includes: A Freewrite, Peer review, new grammar point, essay writing learning point (thesis, transition, etc.), homework assignment, quiz, etc.
Always a challenge which I enjoy
