Feel like you are working way more than you should? Maybe you are! Did you know that our contract stipulates how many hours you should be working based on your level of assistantship? It does!
The only way to really know whether you are working too many hours is to keep track.
Track the hours you spend on teaching and teaching-related tasks, and if after several weeks, it is apparent that you are being overworked, contact your steward or the GEO office.
Tasks to consider tracking:
- Prep Time/Research
- Class Time
- Office Hours
