So a while back I asked for some advice on planning and teaching very low level students as well as mixed level. I haven't been teaching for too long but am starting to learn a few things. However, I recently ran into a situation I'm not sure how to handle. I was hired to work 26 classroom hours a week at a salary of roughly 31k a month; after the 26 hours I would be paid a rate of 400 per hour. I was just told my hours have increased to 31 hours in class but I will get 300 per hour. I mentioned this and the owner said they can only afford to pay 300. Question: What would you do?? Desperate for work? No. Small town? Yes. Do people talk? Yes. Thanks for your opinions.
