A Melting Pot of Hope and Guidance
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – March 13, 2018
As a Faculty Adjunct at Lone Star College- Kingwood campus, I have my full attention directed toward my students and my professional development. My hours are often spent working on planning lessons and activities, working with students, and student assessment. However, as is experienced by most adjunct faculty, I am only paid for three hours a week which are devoted to interaction with students and not for any office hours, or external lesson planning or grading. Thankfully, I am allowed to work from home and I have online access to WebEx, which means I can speak with my students via video chat.
Lone Star College has afforded me resources, workshops, and active learning experience to better perform as an educator. I have been given a great opportunity to help lower-income students who want to find education to support themselves and their families like myself.
I only wish that I could meet with fellow adjuncts in my department more often so that I can seek out ways to better focus my lessons and objectives.
access to library databases, online interfacing, professional development opportunities
no paid vacation, no pay for hours spent working outside student interaction
