Wow - I appreciate your help, Mark. I should contact the U-Michigan personnel office, too. Since I was unilaterally and wrongly pushed out the door, I fear that any application linking to my U-M job of 4 1/2 years will somehow bear a wrongful black mark against me.
With my kids in grades 8 and 9, I feel bound to limit my search to the greater Michgan area. I could do out of state or out of country, project-based work with stints at home and away, though. I'm considering looking for a way to get a public high school teaching job - at least benefits and pay are better than adjunct work. My provisional license of 1997 expired, though.
Money-wise, I've worked for cheap these past 10 years at the full-time equivalent of 35,000 - 39,000 per year. Naturally the more the better, of course, but I'd say 40,000 is a reasonable baseline.
My vita is attached, for your reference. I'm afraid I'd never manage the 6 courses in one semester that you once did, so a combination of teaching and admin or research would best suit me. Naturally the very best use of my talents is in an outreach, marketing or public education capacity - creating and adapting materials for specific audiences.
At present I comb the listings around colleges and universities of Michigan, as well as the civil service pages in the State of Michigan. I interviewed at Davenport University near Grand Rapids in early March, but haven't heard back. The leader of the search committee has taken maternity leave, her email bounce-back says, so I need to follow up with another of the committee there.
