Tallahassee Community College Issues Urgent Call For Instructors

Tallahassee Community College has an ongoing need for part time instructors.
Tallahassee Community College has an ongoing need for part time instructors.

Tallahassee Community College is looking for adjunct instructors – fast. TCC’s new semester began this week with 4% more students than last fall.

The jump is attributed, in part, to last year’s pandemic uncertainty.

“I think a lot of students took a gap year. A lot of students didn’t know what was happening with COVID-19,” says TCC Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Calandra Stringer. “I think as they graduated last year, they kind of just took a step back and did not go to college. So now we’re seeing those students come as well as the students who just graduated in May.”

TCC needs instructors now in English, Math, Biology, and Nursing. More instructors will be needed for express sessions that begin in September and October. Instructors must have Master's degrees except for those teaching certain nursing courses.

Adjunct faculty can now earn nearly $3,000 per class. Full time openings are also available.

TCC is offering various course modalities this year:

· On-campus face-to-face classes.

· TCC LIVE (Learning Interactively in a Virtual Environment) – synchronous online classes using software allowing students to meet at regularly scheduled times.

· TCC Online – synchronous classes that allow students flexibility to complete coursework online with predetermined deadlines.

· Hybrid – classes that may include a combination of online and face-to-face coursework.

Those interested in teaching can contact Science and Math Dean Kalynda Holton at 850-201-8107 or at kalynda.holton@tcc.fl.edu.
