I really enjoyed my time teaching at this lovely community college in Venice Florida.
Top-notch people in the Language and Literature EAP department. Professional, supportive. Strong focus on student centered teaching. Strong focus on creativity, integrity, collaboration, and program development. Many opportunities for learning and skill development. – more... Focus on student needs. Modern teaching technology.
Cons: Low salary, no benefits, no job security, social security deducted, but not put in SS fund. Your money goes to a private agency for speculation, instead.
Bottom Line: This is a great place to both work and develop your teaching skills, if you have a substantial savings account, and don't need full-time employment, or to save for retirement. – less
