I was initially going to refrain from this question since it is still a bit of a sore spot.  I am an Academic Support Specialist who works with the Campus Learning Center in the study skills area  and I coordinate and direct the math lab while also being the math expert in a separate Learning Disabilities Program.  Currently the director of our writing lab is a faculty member with release time, and I am classified as staff.  The reason this is such a sore spot is that I replaced a tenured faculty member.   I know that this writing lab director position at our college will be reclassified next year as a part-time staff position.
