    Retired and teaching part time

    Hello everyone. It has been some time since my last post.

    As you can see, I finished at CCU and Excelsior some time ago and each degree has helped me tremendously in my career.

    A few years back I looked into teaching at the local junior college. To my surprise, my
    two year degree and experience was enough to qualify me for an adjunct teaching position at the junior college in the technical field. I teach AC/DC electric motors.

    So, being retired and teaching part time has been a great change of pace. In hindsight, I wish I had looked into teaching full time.

    I wish everyone on the forum success.......keep up the good work

    Good for you! Your NA and RA degrees have served you well!
    XVI.8: Confucius said, "There are three things of which the superior man stand in awe. He stands in awe of the ordinances of Heaven. He stands in awe of great men. He stands in awe of the words of the sages. The mean man does not know the ordinances of Heaven, and consequently does not stand in awe of them. He is disrespectful to great men. He makes sport of the words of the sages."

    Bonus - Most of your students will walk into jobs that pay better than those graduates who have RA 4-year degrees in Art History or Philosophy!
