Little or No Blogging Today

Sorry for the lack of posts today. I had to teach a class last night and I’m doing my best to finish my last week of work at Fidelity on a very strong note so my coworkers friends will be left on good standing as my projects are handed off to them.

Speaking of teaching last night, I received an email yesterday afternoon from the university director. She said she needed to speak with me. My first thought was that she found out I had a blog and didn’t like something I had posted or something, but then again I remember listing her as the person I reported to on some paperwork I had to fill out on a background check. I replied back to her email that I was teaching later that night and would stop by her office.

I was pretty nervous as I entered her office, but it turns out I shouldn’t have been.  She just wanted to promote me from an adjunct instructor to lead instructor with the understanding that I attend a lunch time seminar, which happens to be next week, which I’m taking off before I start my new full time job.  Timing couldn’t have worked out any better.  Good times.

    You only have to have your masters to teach at the college level?

    Depending upon the institution, you “only” need to have a masters, and are hired as an adjunct or part-time lecturer. If there is any hope for me to work full time or to get tenure, I would need a terminal degree such a Ph.D, Ed.D or D.B.A. It also depends upon industry experience or certifications and having at least 18 graduate hours in a particular subject. Most schools will not hire someone with “only” a masters degree because they need a certain percentage of staff to have a terminal degree in order to obtain an accreditation with a respectable agency.

    When I was working on my undergrad, a lot of full-time faculty “only” had a masters or were ABD (all but dissertation”.
