My first day of being an after school teacher at a middle school started out rough. The lady who hired me has been out sick, so I went to their office and no one knew what to do with me. My new boss (not the lady who hired me) eventually found me. He is very nice.

Due to the confusion today, I merely observed and did light interaction with the students. They did worksheets and then played math games. The job will be challenging, if only because the students are not enamored with math and they are middle school kids. However, I already have some ideas about what they don’t like and what they do like. Hopefully, I can develop some things for them that’ll be fun.
