So Trinity posts a full time position teaching undergrad science with the potential to tenure. Wow. Full time. Unheard of. I’m not fool enough to think I’m tenure material, but I had hoped this may be a positive work environment with decent pay where I can actually teach!
Working at a christian college in Langley? Might be the 7th ring of hell but I love to teach and I can respect all the world’s citizens and their beliefs. Right? This is higher education!!
