Paul Baltimore never expected that he’d have to cobble together teaching gigs at three different community colleges to earn a living. Baltimore, who holds a doctorate from UC Santa Barbara and is an expert in the history of U.S. foreign relations, commutes via light rail and bus from his home in Sacramento to his teaching assignments at Folsom Lake, Cosumnes River and Sacramento City colleges. Three times he was a finalist for a full-time position, but he hasn’t landed a permanent job yet.
