Opportunity, Experience, and Exasperation
Faculty Member (Former Employee) – Physical Therapist Assistant Department – April 6, 2018
It was the best of times and the worst of times. Due the dysfunction and poor leadership, there was opportunity to repair and build the PTA program into a respectable and acknowledged educator of quality PTA students.
Upper Management and leadership changed so often that it affected the continuity of growth towards a higher level of learning and excellence. Poor management also lead to decreased revenue and spending which directly affected the student's learning resourses (technology with internet wifi, video streaming, lab equipment, etc.)
The position afforded me the opportunity to grow professionally as a physical therapy educator and for that I am grateful. Eventually, I had to leave the school due to furloughs, budget cuts, and the realization that the school did not support a solid commitment to the student's education but focused on profit margins instead.
Good pay and some automony for instruction
Poor management and leadership
