I taught ESL as an adjunct instructor and it was by far the most professionally run organization for which I've ever worked. My then supervisor, Fanny Parris, worked above and beyond to make sure all adjunct instructors were well informed and made to feel like full time faculty. I'm glad to see them growing.
