Teaching was a new kind of adventure, Alexander supposed. Of course, once father realised that not one, but two of his children chose a stable employment over the joys of research (which was kinda unfair, honestly, considering both him and Pen continued with their own work, just wanted an income alongside it, too), he would most likely be outraged.
Especially since Alex took a place at Illvermorny of all places! What a betrayal of his roots that'll be in his father's eyes! His mother will be thrilled, of course, to have her son finding a new home at her alma mater. Even if he was affiliated with a different house.

It took the man a while to get used to the 'usual' wizarding community again. Some people actually still wore robes on regular occasions? It fascinated him almost as much as muggles did when he started university. He thanked the heavens that the class he taught sort of allowed him to dress in 'regular' clothes - which was why he was dressed in a t-shirt, jeans and a blazer (that one mostly to keep at least a little bit of an official air).
Was it strange, a pureblooded wizard teaching muggle studies? Perhaps, in a way, but then again, muggleborns didn't always know what to answer to the curious and confused magic folk who've never used a phone or a washing machine. They were such ordinary things, who knew what they worked like or who thought of them and why. His fascination and experiences made him a good adept for the position. Hopefully, the students would allow him to gush a bit every now and then.

He had prepared his blackboard to have his name on it, as well as the name of the class - although he had to correct that one after his first attempt, still convincing his brain to start using 'no-maj', but so far, quite hopelessly.

No-Maj Studies


He decided to sit down on his desk and go through some of the notes he left for himself - mostly since he's already managed to forget what was it that he wanted to present to his students today...

Mati arrived early. He was excited for this class to start. He enjoyed learning about the unknown and no-maj people fascinated him. How could they live without magic? He was glad he was of age and that he could use magic to do the simplest of things. Relieved that none of his siblings or cousins were there yet, he took a seat at the back of the class and took his supplies out eyeing the Professor, which he thought was discreet, then greeted him with a : "Hello, Professor."

Sara had an interest in learning no-maj ways and their culture. She was excited to take the class although she wasn't too thrilled that her cousin was in the class. She wasn't going to let that dampen her excitement though. She chose to sit as far away as she possibly could. She took out her textbooks and everything else that she needed and read her textbook in the meantime.

As the students trickled into the classroom, Alex stood up from the desk and quickly addressed the arrivals, his British accent thick as if on the defensive against all the American around him. "'Ello, before we can start, I will have to ask you, if you have your wands on you - which you probably do - put them into this box please, you will not need them during the class and they could disturb the work we will be doing," he motioned to a blackened iron box laid on his desk. Standard issue isolation he usually used on his own enchanted items when he needed to work 'outside' of magic. It wouldn't harm the potential of the instruments which he felt the need to stress for the students' sake. "They will be completely safe, and will be returned in the same state you have left them, after class."

Ryker put his wand in the box although he did wonder what they would be doing that require them to hand in their wand until probably the end of class. He figured that there was probably a good reason and they would soon figure out what they would be doing. He sat back down in his seat as he kept his focus on the professor. He thought about doodling or setting up his notes. He shrugged as he doodled in his notepad.
