today i didn’t teach because there was a workshop instead. so i told my students we would be joining the workshop.. no problem.
the presenter (a young black woman in her 30s) was doing her thing, then asked a question and wanted everyone (meaning students, not tutors) to answer, but asked me to answer. i did of course, but…
i always feel some type of way when people assume i’m a student and not one of the tutors of the program… i don’t know how many times i have to tell unsuspecting/ignorant staff that i don’t attend classes, i TEACH them. (i teach adult esol)
being one of the few young tutors (if not the only) i guess it’s not a job people my age take? also, being physically disabled people still have ignorant views of what can be possible.
