One former neighbor looked at me in total shock:
"Isn't it hard?"All I could reply was the truth:
"Have you ever tried to control a class?"That's right. Like many teachers, including the store manager, I find it worthwhile to put away the lesson planner and use marking pens to mark prices rather than tests. I may not get paid for summer vacation or that long Passover Holiday, but I no longer have to prepare lessons, mark papers/tests/compositions, go to parent and pedagogy meetings, etc. My schedule is flexible, so I can attend weddings and my granddaughter's chalilit, recorder recital.
Yes, I do work hard. I have no set breaks, because you can't walk out on a customer in the middle of serving him/her. Yafiz experiences waves of business and quiet like most stores. Serving customers is our #1 priority, after that we are constantly arranging and rearranging and adding to the stock of clothes. No two days are the same. Actually, I like that.
And because of my schedule's flexibility and the fact that I'm only working part-time, I can still tutor students of all ages in English. And I can still do diet coaching and photography, too.
It's Thursday, so on with my day....
