      Pros

      As a new part-time professor, I found the staff and other faculty incredibly welcoming and friendly. It was a shame we had to pivot from in-person to online mid-semester, and I had to teach remotely, away from the college and the others who work there.

      Cons

      Being a part-timer, when the pandemic hit and I was the last to know about schedule changes and teaching assignments. I was initially offered further courses to teach after a successful first semester, but I only found out a week before classes began that I was not needed this semester, and my course was being taught by someone else. This was after I received course materials to study and slides to use during lectures from another prof who had prepared everything as THEY were told they would be teaching the course earlier, but then it had been given to me! I totally understand the nature of staffing during a dramatic downturn in enrollment caused by the pandemic, but a little more notice would have been nice. It's really a small complaint, but led to my 4/5 rating instead of 5/5!
