Yeah, me too. As George Carlin put it, individuals are great; you can see the universe in their eyes. But people in groups are stupid and petty.

Collins says either is [ok/okay].

https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/woah
Well, Collins can go phoag itself. 

First, they are pronounced differently.  "Whoa" is like what cowboys say to their horses, the other is "woe-uhhh". 

Just because people are wrong, dictionaries shouldn't go paying them any attention.  BTW, my OED concise does not offer this "variant" (aka deviant) spelling, but it does have "wo".

You might find this bit of Dave Gorman amusing, and possibly instructive (you can start at 10:00, but then you've missed 10 minutes of Dave Gorman):

Years ago, I joined that Oink group, had nothing better to do during deskwarming. Good God, the admins on that group. The "admins" were nothing more than a 3rd wave feminist goon squad. As soon as someone said something they didn't agree with, one of the admins would tag all the rest and go after whoever it was like a swarm of piranha. I quickly left and last I heard, the admins and mods predictably tore each other apart.

Was told I'll be doing a summer camp from 9am to 5pm. Eight 45 minute class periods. (A K-teacher - who may or may not contribute - will be paid for the camp, but I won't.) Did this happen to anyone else? Will be a struggle to keep the students engaged the whole time I think.

Oof. Is it just one day, or...?

I'd honestly much rather have less hours spread over more days, good luck keeping the students occupied throughout a full school day.

Huh? Why won't you be paid?? If you're not getting paid, don't go to work dude. Ive got 4 x 45mins x 5 days, not the worst.
Haven't you got some pictures of birds to be jacking off to, son?

WTF? Really? How does your money work then? I get paid for every minute I am at my school, camp or no camp. Depending on the co teacher and vp, often paid a full day for 4 hours work.

The most I can do in a week without being paid is 22 classes so I should say 8 hours the first day, 8 hours the second day, and 6 hours the third day is the boundary of what's legal (without additional payment).

Maybe say that then make the case for spreading the days out over the whole week with less classes per day? Or compressed with vacation is better?

I mean, Korean teachers continue to draw salary while on vacation. If there is camp, additional payment is 25k per hour. For Korean teachers. Nothing for NETs.
