I went to work yesterday, two hours by train and by foot and then found out that I would not be used this week. The class hadn’t liked my lessons but actually, there were other factors as well, but just to play it safe, they wanted a different teacher for that same class for their second semester. I was pissed off to have travelled so far for work in a tie no less to find out that I would be losing 1000 euros. That did not sit well with me.
I had to talk to the professort at 1pm today. I was afraid that he would say, thanks, but no thanks and I would lose that job for the Fall. But he was a very nice guy, didn’t discuss the comments at all but thought about how to shorten the classes and break them into 2-3 groups. So, money lost, that sucks. Assurance that I should be teaching the class in the Fall is huge. Therefore…phew.
