Is it better to get teaching experience at your alma mater, or at a different school?


Recommended Posts

At our university you can teach after 30 credits of coursework completed. I am still in my third year, but have the option of teaching a freshman class at my public state university. I also have the option of waiting (that would be a lot on top of working on my thesis show) and teaching a class at a community college in another state due to a connection I have. What would be better on a resume for clout and future employers?

Honestly, where you teach isn't going to matter as much as what you've taught, your syllabi, and your evaluations (both from peers and from students). If you want the money and have the time, take the teaching job now and then do the community college thing later.
