    Adjunct Math Instructor

    Current Employee - Adjunct Professor in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Adjunct Professor in Houston, TX

    I have been working at San Jacinto College (more than a year)

    Pros

    My boss is a wonderful person! Each semester you are given a choice on what classes you want to teach in a "first come, first serve" basis. I love the flexibility. You also have the choice from semester to semester if you want to teach so it is not hard to take time off in the event that you may have "life issues" to deal with.

    Cons

    As an adjunct there are no guarantees that you will teach a course from one semester to the next but that due to factors that cannot be controlled. I have not seen any posting for full-time teaching positions in the two years I have been employed at San Jac.
