Eeeuw. The adjunct life.
Today we interviewed two potential adjuncts for my courses during my maternity leave. They both seem qualified and experienced. They are also both working part time for several different colleges that are in the area. When I'd heard how many courses they are already teaching now (basically more than full time) between all the institutions they are working at- AND interviewing for our slot- I just wanted to: 1. Stop bitching about my workload 2. Give thanks to God for my permanent position and 3. Be very glad that I never had to go through the part-time teaching phase before finding my job.
