    Hello.. I am seriously interested in applying for this job. I’m an adjunct at TC3 and I am seeking another part time position. I see that the position is for 20 hours a week, and I would be available all day each Monday/Wednesday/Friday. Would this fulfill the needs of the position? Please let me know asap, and I will go ahead with the Cornell online application process. thank you! Lorraine Sinclaire (sinclal@tc3.edu)
