SLP Corner: How I Became Adjunct Faculty as a Practicing SLP
[Source: Crazy Speech World]
Adjunct positions exist at all universities to fill positions on a short-term basis. I was really lucky to snag one last fall at Florida State as a clinical instructor. I’d always thought that this was the path I wanted to take in my career and the adjunct opportunity allowed me to try it on for size.
I got a call in August from the clinical director at FSU about the possibility of an adjunct position being available. This is someone who I have built a friendly relationship with over the past couple of years, and she knew that I was interested in clinical supervision. By the end of that week, I had accepted and the semester was starting the next week! It was a whirlwind… but I fell in love with the job, and it helped me to feel passionate about being an SLP again.
