College Teaching - October 2nd 2016, 10:42 PM

One of my current goals is to teach undergraduate college courses, specifically in Psychology. I have applied at several colleges, so hopefully one will give me a chance!

That is awesome. I am currently a TA at a university. I have never been instructor of record, but have experience getting in front of class and presenting. What is amazing to me is how I have improved. I just thought I was bad at presenting , but now it is something that doesn't make me the slightest bit nervous at all. It isn't my main goal to become a college professor- mainly because I don't want to spend the next 5 years getting a PhD, but a community college teacher is till possible for me with a Master's, so am thinking about that.

Were you a TA for psych before? Because that is something that will significantly help your chances of success at getting teaching positions.

Public speaking can be scary, but it also builds confidence a whole lot! It gets easier the more you do it. I haven't been a TA before, but I'm applying at a college and not a university, so maybe they will give me a chance. I have all kinds of interactive ideas for classes.
