Place to help others grow and develop autonomous curriculum
ADJUNCT LECTURER, PUBLIC SERVICE MANAGEMENT (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 21, 2015
This position is something I like doing in addition to another full-time job.
The workload is sporadic - each teacher is given leeway to develop their own curriculum and assignments, so the workload is largely self-imposed.
A typical class day consisted of arriving after my other job ended at around 6, teaching for two hours and then correcting papers throughout the week, while planning future lessons.
The best part of the job was interacting with the students, who are exceptional and from diverse backgrounds.
The hardest part of the job is keeping up with the work in the time outside your other commitments. Also, the compensation is, unfortunately, far beneath what it should be.
Autonomy, job benefits like office space, lunchroom and student interaction
