Work situation

The classes I taught this semester are now officially over. I have to run the final exam for Lesley and do a mountain of grading, but other than that, I don't have to prepare any more lessons or show up at any more appointed times. That's a real relief, as I could use a freer schedule for a while. I still have plenty to do, but any break in the pressure will be very much appreciated.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I'm going to be teaching at Lesley next semester like I'd hoped. I did a good job with my class this time around, but they don't have freshman composition in the spring semester. I'm pretty disappointed that I won't be able to take on more classes there like I'd hoped-- at least, not until next fall. I have been invited to get back into contact with them in April, so I will most likely be able to return to teaching there eventually, but that means this next semester isn't going to be the career step forward that I'd hoped.

Things at North Shore look more promising. My bosses are amenable to the idea of me teaching there this spring, but even that isn't a sure thing. Enrollment for that semester is apparently down, and they rehire based on seniority. Since I'm brand new, I will be the last they allow to return if they don't have enough classes.

That makes me sad. I was hoping to transition into adjuncting as my primary day job. It was also nice to be making the extra money. I guess I'm still on the right track to that, but it might be put on hold for this next semester. I've applied some other places, but it's probably too late to be considered at this point, and I was way too busy this past semester to think of it before now. Ah, well. At least I won't be slammed all the time. It could be worse, but I'm kind of disappointed.
