substitute teaching

Did my first substitute teaching gig today. I was a bit worried since it was high school and had visions of paper planes being thrown at me.

When I got there, I was surprised at how "old" high schoolers look. They're almost full grown adults!

The ratio was really low, 8 students per class. The first section I covered was pretty easy, and the class was very well behaved. The second section was more rowdy and gave me a run for my money.

But all in all, it was reasonably enjoyable. I also remembered algebra, to my surprise, so I could actually help some of the kids.
