Committed Instructors, Excellent Benefits
Assistant Professor of English, Speech (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 18, 2018
I stopped working there in 2006, so I can only speak about before then.
I was there from the start,. and then, we were more like a family, building the school, its reputation, and educating students who were considered underprepared for other colleges such as GSU or Georgia Tech. In other words, AMC was a "feeder" school. As time went on, the college's vision expanded.
A typical day involved teaching 3 or 4 classes. On some days, there were committee meetings, and of course, registration at various times of the year.
The hardest part: Correcting 70-90 papers a week (I taught Developmental English) before technology. The most enjoyable: Bonding with colleagues.
Management: Varied between highly political and very supportive.
What I learned: How to navigate a political landscape.
Comraderie, Student Appreciation for my efforts
Politics gets in the way of education
