If you want to know more about who I am, even though the person discussed is NOT me, read what the Chronicle has to say about Nancy Christensen. I am a little farther along in the process, but two years ago, I was her.
The article section starts out with:
“Using adjunct teaching to provide balance in their lives, like Mr. Anderson does, is a common theme among adjuncts, particularly those seeking to level the work-life seesaw.”
Another money quote, pardon the pun:
“The desire for more money is shared by many adjuncts, of course. But for some, it can be overpowered by the desire to teach.”
