In each class year the students were given different jobs based on each teachers' fancy. The jobs weren't paid jobs, of course, they were really helps for the teacher so she could leave before 4 p.m. Remember we got out at 3 p.m.
I liked to: water the plants, feed the fish, lower and raise the shades, clap the erasers, straighten the desk alignment, if I was in a class with moveable desks, and do the monthly attendance records. I especially liked the after school jobs because I got to talk with my teacher. I was a chatterbox back then. Still am, I guess, even though I don't really say much (quantifiably).
