From the moment I woke up yesterday I was in a state of bowel-twisting anxiety. I went into the college's online resource for teachers and checked my class numbers. There was a grand total of 6 students registered. For summer that's not that strange, but I was still afraid of being cancelled. I threw on my clothes and makeup in a record 15 minutes and headed off to the school to see if my class was getting the axe. I stuck my head into the director's office with a sad look.
"How many do you have??" she chirped.
"Six," I croaked. "Am I gonna get cancelled?"
"Nope. We're required to have a Learning Skills class at night, and you're it, Babyyyy"
*1,000-watt smile* "OK! See ya tomorrow!"
Whew. I checked again last night, and now I only have five students, but at least I'm still gonna be able to teach it. I'm not sure if I'll get paid the full amount or if it'll be pro-rated by student, but at least it's something.
Class starts tonight at 5:30 (and goes until 9:20). I'm looking forward to it for some weird reason...even though this class is pretty boring to teach.
