level) in the USA?
I'd appreciate input from all, but specifically from any tech comm
teachers in the USA on the list.

If you are interested in teaching writing at the university level, it's probably worth noting that most of the English department/writing professor jobs are as adjuncts, which in the US often means that you will not have an office, or a benefit package, and that work is often assigned on a per-semester basis, with no guarantee of future teaching assignments, no matter how well you teach. This is based on teaching professional writing/lit, but I think it's fairly consistent across fields.

Hope this helps,
