While the schedules aren't complete, I have a night class that I think is mine for keeps. One of my fellow Math teachers is leaving next week. I think that means the night class that was going to be taken from me and replaced with something else will now remain with me. The real bummer is that it meets Monday and Thursday so I have to teach until 7:00 p.m. on the last workday of the week. It was strange walking out of class to see the campus under artificial light. I think it was the first time I've been there at night.
The good news is that it's a class that I've taught before so I don't have much prep for it. The bad news is that a lot of the students I failed last semester are in it. Usually, the night classes are nice because the students in them are a little older and have jobs, so a little more responsible. Because this class is part of the old program, it's the last time it will be offered and the last chance for the failures to take it. While I'm not looking forward to seeing some of the students, for the most part, the class seems to be fairly hard-working. I just hope the ones who don't like me don't ruin the whole class.
