Her "energy and passion" are

Her "energy and passion" are part of her unbridled ambition. The $125,000 per year and all the perks that go with it will keep her smiling, no doubt.

As a long-time employee of the NC community college system, I can honestly say that at least half the people working for it are sitting in cushy chairs, doing little more than surfing the WEB.

If you can, I urge you to hop aboard the community college gravy train. It's an easy life. Easy.

community college "workers"

As a current teacher at an area community college, I had to laugh out loud at Guest444's wicked, audacious humor because every word is true.

If the public knew what little "work" is done during an 8-hour community college shift,they would be enraged.

There's lots of dead wood to be found in this system. But nothing will change. The "Community College Gravy Train" (so funny, so true) will keep right on chugging along.

Internet surfing is an obsession where I work. One co-worker, in fact,is being treated for carpel tunnel syndrome because she spends most of her 8-hour shift surfing the NET. I kid you not.
