    Post: would you teach a course with only 2 students?

    I teach math for the county's online high school and we get
    paid per student. Right now I only have 2 students enrolled
    in the course. I'm new onboard, but from what I've heard,
    this is common for the second semester.

    While I have the course material up and ready to go, we
    still have to have office hours at least 2x a week and I'll
    have to drive about 35 mi one way to administer the midterm
    and final. Even though a colleague said she'd sit there with
    my students, the administrator wants us to have the face time.

    I'm considering not teaching the next semester with all of
    this to take into consideration. I will teach in the summer
    and Fall, but I'm thinking for less than $500 (before
    taxes), it's not worth it.

    Any thoughts?
