Tyler Morgan's Evening Job
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     In order to afford a new riding lawnmower, Tyler Morgan took a temporary job at the technical college teaching English to immigrants. How hard could it be? He felt more than qualified for the task. Although he was employed as an accountant for a carpeting manufacturer, he had been speaking English almost since birth!
 
2     A colleague from the legal department suggested that he would be out of his league teaching anything to anybody, but Tyler tried not to let him damage his self-confidence. At five o'clock he took off for his first class. He stopped for a burger and fries on the way, keeping a close eye on his watch so that he would be punctual. About to make a difference in the lives of newcomers to America, he felt exhilarated!
 
3     He walked into the classroom and saw fifteen pairs of eyes fixed on him. The exhilaration he had felt earlier suddenly vanished, and Tyler felt nauseous instead. What was he doing in front of a class? He should have kept to the safety of his cubicle back at the office!
 
4     It was too late to bail out now, and Tyler had no option but to proceed. "Good evening," he said with a catch in his voice.
