Teaching (or why I am pissed, part 351)

I have been TAing for my Head of Department for about 7 years. This means that I have started this job when I was an undergrad. When I became a grad student things didn't change. Except from that I had to grade (1000 exams) without getting more money.

So, some days ago he asked me if I could do it again next term.

I said no. I said it was a student's job and I won't be a student anymore next term, given my defense in fall.

I have to tell you, deep inside I was furious. There are other grad students at My Dept, and some of them even get to teach their own corses themselves, not doing the shit work for the HoD's class. It's just that I will have my PhD in fall and some people, or maybe people in general get assistant professorships at that point in their career, or even tenure-track positions.

Why do I feel that I have disappointed my boss? Why do I feel so bad about this? But I am definitely not going to do the same job as the one I did when I was an undergrad.

Follow your heart and mind. Trust yourself. Don't worry about disappointing your boss. It sounds like he's gotten quite a run out of you. You're (almost) done with that PhD. You deserve a change.

Articulate Dad is correct! Don't settle for anything less than you deserve.

This same thing happened to me, though only for two years (and not SEVEN!!), and eventually I just had to be stern and rather rude. The professor just kind of relied on me so much that he just assumed that I would help him for nothing forever. Sounds like your situation. You've got your own career to start worrying about. It's time for your boss to move on.

How did H of D respond to you saying no? Seems strange that he/she would even ask. Maybe he/she forgot that you were graduating? Is that possible?

Otherwise, you are legally bound by those terms that could prove disastrous for you if you fail to act in accordance with the terms of the loan. We would like to think that everyone is above board, but not all lenders are. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous lenders out there who intend to make a profit at your expense.
