I just submitted my application for a community college teaching position in NC. I always planned on teaching high school, but I haven't ruled out the idea of teaching at a community college (assuming there are jobs available, which is not necessarily a given). So I have two questions: 1. Do community colleges allow instructors who are also high school teachers to teach CC courses in the summer? 2. What are the pros and cons of each environment? I teach at a university at the moment, and the biggest advantage is that there are relatively few discipline issues. The biggest con: not enough time in the classroom with the students. In high school, the biggest disadvantage was the massive workload involved (multiple preps, lots of grading and paperwork, etc.), but the length of each class allowed for a lot of freedom. Thoughts? Thanks in advance for your input!
