    What led you to become an Associate Faculty?
    I had a year off after undergrad while applying to Masters and professional programs and saw this contract as the perfect stepping-stone opportunity while I figured out the next steps in my career and education. Having prior experience at LCS as an alumni, I knew LCS offered a desirable environment and community that I wanted to work in. It made me realize I loved working with students so I went to teacher’s college. After graduating, I wanted more classroom experience. Returning as an Associate Faculty made perfect sense for my next steps as an educator because I would get much more valuable teaching experience and classroom time (whether through co-teaching, or with my own sections) than I would have from joining a supply list. I also knew I'd be getting to work alongside, and learn from, some of the top educators in the country.

    What will you take away from the position?
    Beyond learning what I should be doing with my life, I feel like I've gained years of educational experience in just 18 months. I've had opportunities afforded me in terms of teaching, coaching, and professional development that I don't think I would have gotten elsewhere. I've also learned what it really means to work in a team where everyone supports each other and will go the extra mile for the best interest of the students' well-being and experience. It's rewarding to be a part of it.

    What should applicants know about the job?
    This job presents so many opportunities and ways to become involved that it can be overwhelming sometimes. Ask questions, talk to other staff members and get involved with as many things as possible. There is something here for everyone and people to support you along the way. From monthly campaigns like MOvember, to year-long clubs or committees like THRIVE, there is no end to what you can get involved in and it is so worth it. I found that being involved in additional things (on top of my residence & Outdoor Ed duties) helped me connect more with students and staff who were also passionate about these areas and I learned so much about myself along the way.

    While this job is immersive and can be a lot, it is one of the most rewarding jobs I have ever done. We get to see students grow from shy, unsure and wary freshmen into young adults, having gone through some major life events with them in the process. You get to become the ‘go-to’ person for both boarders and day-students, some in your residence and some in others. It’s a pretty great feeling that is hard to describe.
