I took a job for 12:35-2:35 subbing for a math teacher. Hardly seems worth it to go in for just 2 hours, but it happened to fit my schedule that day.

Arrived a few minutes early, since 12:35 is in the middle of a class which starts at 12:22. The teacher was still there, and so was another math teacher. Second math teacher said he had offered to introduce the topic (completing the square for a polynomial) to the class, since it was somewhat complex, and then I could do it for the next class (after I had the review

...which was a good thing, since the last time I did that skill was in 1969.

).

So first math teacher left after a few minutes, second math teacher introduced the skill, which took 30 minutes, and then I took over supervising worksheet completion. I taught the second class, but after about a half hour, the original teacher returned. I hung around and helped kids with the worksheet, basically as an aide in the class.

Both classes were pretty squirrelly and tough to keep on task, so I was very active the whole time.

Got an email from Aesop announcing that I would only be paid from 12:35 till 1:50, since the original teacher returned at that time.

. Really not worth the time and effort I expended. I won't do that again.
