Professor "JP"

     This was my Staff ID card when i was working at the College.  That was a great time for me.  I usually had a good bunch of kids by the end of the semester.  Teaching is too time consuming for the money.  Oh, sure you get $30 an hour (1986) but it takes 4 hours of prep for every hour of lecture and lab time.  Spending the weekends grading quizzes and exams digs into it even further.  Teaching is not a job anybody should get into for the money.  You have to enjoy doing it or you have few other rewards.  By the time you figure in your total time, you are getting somewhere near minimum wage, it seems.
