Stressful, the financial interest of the institution was forefront and the actual teaching and learning aspect was secondary. Your pay depended on attendance levels, which you as an instructor have little or no control. Instructors had to on a daily basis call students who missed class, email, them, text their phones and even times they went to the homes to find students. While you were paid hourly for the hours just teaching the class, no compensation was made for the time on a daily basis that you prepared for class, develop your tests and lesson plans and come in on off days to grade and report on the student attendance. Students themselves were angry that those who missed classes or failed to submit reports or homework were given the option to come in after hours, sit in on basically any instructors class and be given credit for that absence or allowed to submit timed reports or homework after the deadlines. Students receive financial assistance to attend class. If their attendance or grades and mainly the graduation rates are not met, this affects the institutions revenues.
teaching is a learning experience
