Professor Wilde had a break before his next class started. He already had his class planned out and he didn't expect there to be any trouble since the third years that he would be teaching weren't particularly unruly. They were kids, of course, so they could be loud and had a lot of questions, but he never felt like the class that specific class was full of trouble makers. Besides, he was lucky enough to teach one of the few classes at Hogwarts (or any school for that matter) that the majority of the students found interesting. He had to agree. He found Defense Against the Dark Arts very entertaining, otherwise he wouldn't be teaching it. And his students, at least the younger ones, seemed to be impressed that he actually had the experience to go along with the class. He thought some of the older students doubted that he had ever truly been an Auror, but there wasn't a whole lot he could do about that. If they wanted to, they could probably look up when he had been at the Ministry of Magic, but he didn't think the students were all that concerned. What they knew was that they were taking a class by a fairly laid back professor.
Jason didn't like grading homework so most of his classes were hands-on rather than parchment-writing heavy. He didn't understand how some classes (aside from things like History of Magic) could have teachers that just assigned homework and got away with it. Sure, Jason gave out a work sheet or an essay now and then, but mostly he asked the students to read the chapters and then they put the theory to use in his class. How else were they going to learn to defend themselves?
In any case, it was his free period now and he was doing little besides walking around. He was at the entrance hall when he finally stopped and leaned against the stone wall, deciding that this would be a good place to see any students who were needlessly wandering around. Students who should be in class. He didn't plan on getting anyone in trouble, but watching out for that sort of behavior was part of his job.
