It's Official


I am an adjunct professor!

I received my contract yesterday to teach an online Business Law course (the course I developed and wrote) at a Christian university. I am so excited! This has been my dream since I started law school 20 years ago.

I always said that I thought I might practice law for a few years and then teach. Little did I know that you don't just decide to teach. It's difficult to get into that field, and quite a process! And, the pay stinks. But, with technological advances, I am able to teach this course from home and still educate my children without interruption. So, there aren't any overhead expenses for me in gas, clothing, etc. Heck, I can teach in my pjs (and plan to)! I get the best of both worlds.

To say that God orchestrated this whole thing would be a huge understatement! The way this all came about is nothing short of divine intervention, and I am so grateful for the opportunity.

I am hoping this is only the beginning … that slowly I will be able to add other classes, maybe even from other universities, so that I can make this a full-time career someday. This would be a great way to spend my later years.

Now I just have to get to working on a viable schedule for our family. Fitting this in will require work and diligence. But I am up for the challenge.
