I chose this institution because of the teaching offer but...

I am a Librarian by profession. From my previous private institution last March 2014, I decided to be hired as a fulltime librarian last April 2014 as a promised to me by the College President to give me six teaching loads in addition to my salary as a Librarian. I love to teach that is why because of this promise, I accepted his offer even if I have an offer from the Government office as a Librarian III. I knew then that being a Librarian III in the government has a big salary compare to my salary here in this private institution. From his promise of six subjects, after turning down the government offer to me, he only gave me two subjects on the first semester. Of course, I complained then, but my complain was worthless. Then on the second semester, I only have one subject, the reason, low enrolment. And now another semester coming, the classes already started yesterday. But there are still students enrolling. And of course, I still do not have teaching loads for the moment. The loads administrator told me last week that I have to wait. But still, my prefered subjects were already given to other professors. Is this a bias? My friends and my wife already told me, why are you still staying? I said, I still hoping and patiently waiting. #Teaching #Education #Tertiary #College #Profession #Librarian #Government #Work

Teaching loads can be quite heavy but it's hard to understand why he would offer teaching loads if he didn't want you to teach. Was it maybe just so he could get a librarian with a low salary. I think I would be looking for another post. In the meantime, what about private tutoring in the evenings?

I would also feel disappointed if I were in your shoes.

Actually I do have private tutoring every other Saturday. So, twice a month but still this is not enough to fulfill my savings.

I enjoy teaching too and will be doing so later this year. I am sorry you've not got the teaching load you were hoping for. How disappointed you must feel.

At last I finally received yesterday one teaching load for the moment. My class will be Philippine Literature 5:00pm to 6:30pm for the BS Criminology students.

Yes this is cool. I am very happy with them during the class that even the College President monitored my kind of teaching.
