Format: Paperback
This little book is both funny and wise. Every aspiring college teacher, as well as adjuncts, especially in the humanitites, should read it. Beautifully written in an assured novelistic style, it combines amusing anecdotes from the trenches of college teaching,witty bits of fiction, and keen observations about how to succeed--and fail--as a college teacher. It makes you laugh a lot, wince more than once, sometimes almost cry, and ultimately feel good about the nobility and joy of teaching itself. A pleasure to read and a memorable testimony to the under-appreciated lives of devoted and often self-sacrificing teachers.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Wendell V. Fountain on April 20, 2009
Format: Paperback
Dr. Mary Allen Redd has poignantly presented the plight of the adjunct professor. She gives very accurate and truthful advice to those who toil as contingent professors. Additionally, she describes the nuances of the higher education system regarding becoming a tenured professor--what I call the three P's (power, politics, and pettiness). I highly recommend this book for all who teach in higher education.

Format: Paperback
In public school, they're substitutes; in a university, they're part-timers. "Confessions of a Teacher: Or How to be a Part Timer" is the fictionalized memoir of Dr. Dana Shaughnessy as she deals with the exciting aspects of teaching part time, and how she realizes part time is (perhaps more than) enough. An entertaining and humorous read, "Confessions of a Teacher" should brighten anyone's day, with a special nod to educators.

By Mark Bailey on November 19, 2012
Format: Paperback
Mary Allen Redd tells it like it is--the world and life of the adjunct instructor, where educated, skilled teachers love teaching but don't get much love from their institutions! A smart, delightful read.
