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?
