      Great institution that respects and trusts its faculty

      Jan 21, 2021 - Adjunct Professor in New York, NY

      Pros

      Professors are afforded a lot of freedom, and it is empowering to come up with your own workshop activities and strategies, even when there is a core curriculum to follow. I would say that the absence of direct supervision and feedback is a double-edged sword. However, student course evaluations are helpful in this regard. You feel connected to your students and that you are really helping them.

      Cons

      If you are a dedicated teacher and truly care about your students, you will end up putting in a lot of time – a lot more hours than what you get paid for.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Easy to work with your manager to build a schedule around classes

      Cons

      Students can be impatient. It can become a customer service type role around finals in Decemeber and May.

      I was able to work with so many kids teaching them Art and Skills! I Loved every part of Guiding them with their Art Experience. I increased my organizing and management skills.

      Cons

      I was employed by a School system that didn't have my best interest at heart but intended to use me as a resource.

      Pros

      Great faculty, and great colleagues. Progressive mission vision and values. Students are encouraged to challenge the status quo, which is rewarding as a faculty member. Benefits are good, even for part-time faculty, but you are required to join the union.

      Cons

      Lacking diversity in student body and in faculty. Compensation is very low when you add up all the work outside of class.
