My foray into adjunct life

Houlihan, I. (2009). My foray into adjunct life. Chronicle of Higher Education, 55(25), A40-A41. http://chronicle.com/article/My-Foray-Into-Adjunct-Life/44862/

This short, personal narrative is an interesting look at the life of an adjunct through the eyes of a recently tenured professor.  In a short four pages he describes poignant moments of understanding concerning the working environment of the adjunct.  From a very different mixture of students to interactions with colleagues, his experience gave him a greater respect for adjuncts working in his home college.
