UNM Gallup is a unique campus with many challenges.
Full Time Instructor (Former Employee), Gallup, NMJune 8, 2015
I began at University of New Mexico/Gallup in 1987.Most of the students at UNM Gallup were American Indian, mostly Navajo, the rest being predominately Zuni and Hispanic. I began teaching there after working with Navajo students at Dine College, in Tsaile, AZ. Teaching in a tribal college was a truly unique experience for me.

After leaving UNM Gallup in 2000 I taught for awhile at Navajo Technical College, in Crownpoint, New Mexico, and also for a couple of years at Pueblo Community College, which has a campus at Ignacio, a settlement of Ute Indians.

My shift from eastern colleges and universities was a challenge, but I survived it successfully. My latest transition is now at a nearby campus, UNM Valencia, where I tutor English for a group of Mexican learners. I underwent ESL training at UNMV to prepare me for this challenge.

I am a energized worker. I am tolerant and adaptable to new conditions. I am a skilled communicator and able to motivate others to overcome sometimes difficult tasks. I work with others patiently and clearly. Those were the characteristics of my work at UNMG, Pueblo and Crownpoint.

Its a big family. You learn A LOT.

Pros: modest but livable stipend and benefits
Cons: difficult people
I was employed as a graduate student, and given I was giving part time work compensation and benefits were fantastic. But for the most part the work culture is unfriendly and superiors can be difficult to work with.

Great University and fun place to be
Student Athlete (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMApril 1, 2015
Pros: facilities, relationships
Cons: different coaches
Being a student athlete at the University of New Mexico is an experience I will never take back. Although the inconsistency of head coaches is ever changing, the relationships and molding of becoming a better man is something I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I loved everything about this time, the part I disliked the most was the experience of going through a new coach every year or two.
