Students are very willing to learn. Other faculty is willing to assist with LMS. Typically you can expect prep work and marking assignments to take approximately the same amount of time as the in-class teaching. Overall very enjoyable experience.
Pros
Great support from the Chair when needed
Cons
Nothing - all great

If you had a good idea for new ground breaking teaching concepts, the college was open to entertaining it. The students were enthusiastic and the staff engaging. The administration is somewhat more concerned about insurance policies than education.

Your student appraisal test doesn't matter, you can be a great teacher who gets results, but if the head of the department cares more about being the most liked, pack your things when the contract is up. There is no job security, everyone is playing the game.

So if your hope is to just be a great teacher, and help your students succeed, know that is only 1/2 your job here. The other half, is trying to keep it through high school drama.

Working at Conestoga exceeded my expectations. The polytechnic education system provides students with the practical hands-on tool-set to drive innovation and world classed excellence as they enter the workforce. It is more than a job, but a calling. If you have the background and are a like minded individual with a burning desire to share your experiential knowledge, Conestoga is the place for you.
