Part-time professor speaks up

I am truly sorry that you had a bad experience with a "part-time" teacher. I have been an adjunct (part-time) teacher here at Cabrini for more than 10 years. I am paid far less than minimum wage for my services.

I, like most of my colleagues, full or part-time, am here because I love to teach and to help students move from adolescence to adulthood.

If, as you accused all part-time teachers, I had “more of an interest in getting their paycheck,” I would work in the fast food industry where I would make more money.

I am sorry that you had a negative encounter with a teacher. I hope that in your remaining years in college, you have the opportunity to learn not to make stereotypical judgements based on your own unique experiences.
