  •  Do you realize (3+ / 0-)

    that many teachers have as many as five different classes they teach every day?  That is five different classes to prepare for every night.  I never do things exactly the same year after year, so experience and files help, but I am constantly having to adjust and tweak and sometimes redo entirely lessons that were effective a couple of years ago but will not be with the students I now have. Sometimes when a teacher builds up a lot of material and experience with a particular subject, the schedule will change and there will be all-new subjects to teach.  

    Try this.  Most schools would love to have someone volunteer to work with students.  Now you may get flipped off and told where to go by a rude student, but you will keep working and trying.  I'm wondering how long you would last.  

    Try it and let us know.
