Professor of mathematics

Introduction to the field:

Usually, a Professor of mathematics, also known under the name of post-secondary level of teacher, teaches at a community college or University.

The work includes plans lesson, giving lectures to students approximately 12 to 16 hours of class per week and parameter about 3 to 7 hours per day to meet to respond to questions and concerns.

The environment is completely different from that of high school and middle school.

Most of the students who go to College are aware of the importance of education.

Therefore, classroom behavior, such as speaking, acting, disturb the other students is unlikely.

As a result, postsecondary teachers find satisfaction and pleasure in teaching.

In addition, classes, Office hours, research and meeting are part of their daily schedule and their schedule is not pre-determined as high school.

The challenge:

The main concern of every teacher post-secondary is obtaining tenure. Tenure is not given to each teacher at the post-secondary level in the profession.

The granting of tenure is established after a post-secondary education has documented significant teaching stories, campus Committee work, publications, and obtained excellent student reviews.

The whole process can take approximately 7 years. At the end of the trial period, if the teacher did not mandate, the teacher may be asked to leave the institution.

Another thing to keep in mind is that College and University hire new tenure-track faculty as instructors or assistant professors. The title of Associate Professor or Professor of mathematics is granted with time and experience.

Finally, postsecondary teachers must conduct scholarly research in the discipline they teach. Publications are reviewed on a regular basis by the Department Director and academic Deans.

This is important because this can help determine whether a teacher should be granted tenure or promotion in their careers.

Get the job:

To obtain post-secondary as teacher employment, a doctoral degree is that many employers are looking for.

At a Community College, someone can get a position teaching either with a master’s degree in mathematics or mathematics education.

However, a master’s degree in mathematics is more desirable than in the teaching of mathematics.

When the need is urgent and pressing, some community colleges hire folks with only a Bachelor’s degree in mathematics, provided that the teacher has a lot of experience.

One day, I was browsing the Web site of Massasoit Community College and I saw an opening in mathematics education with only a Bachelor’s degree in mathematics

The position was temporary (one year). However, it shows something interesting!

When there is a great need, you can get your foot in the door, as a Professor of mathematics at Community College with just a bachelors

Keep in mind that, even if take you with a Bachelor’s degree, you will be required to obtain your master’s degree in mathematics in a period of time
