Class settled after all

Last week I wrote about how I was wondering if my third class at Lesley, the Business Writing course through the Bunker Hill extension, was going to be cancelled due to low enrollment. Well, I inquired after the eventualities, and it turns out that the minimum is actually seven, but it can still run with six-- as long as I'm willing to do it for six-sevenths of the salary. I did the math, and I'll still be making significantly more than I was last semester, so it's still worth it. But I'm hoping it'll get one extra student, because it would suck not to get the full fee.

At least it means I've definitely got three classes for the fall. That means I can go down to one day a week of tutoring. That would be so much less driving, though I've got to finalize the syllabus now. I've been applying to other adjunct positions at other colleges in the area, but I guess I don't need to anymore. I haven't heard back from any of them, but if even if I do, I don't know if I'd be able to teach four classes with all the accompanying grading, especially since we'll be going back into rehearsals for the next two Hawking shows in the fall. Might be worth going to the interviews, just to make relationships in case I ever need to reach out again, but it's good to know I won't be dependent on maybe somebody getting back to me.
