MS sufficient for community college teaching?

When my wife was interviewing for college teaching positions here in Des
Moines, she had relatively little difficulty in picking up part-time work
with an MA in English, even at 4-year colleges. She's worked at community
colleges in Michigan where a fair chunk of the faculty had MA's and didn't
seem to be in a doctoral program.

During one interview with a four-year college in Des Moines, the fact that
I was a technical writer came out, and they asked if I would be interested
in doing some part-time teaching. She explained that I had only a BA, and
they said that was fine, they desperately needed someone with experience.

So, I'd say it's worth a shot.
