Advice

I never take long term sub unless I know the class. In my district if you take a short or longterm assignment and then cancel, you are blocked to get calls for the time period of the term job. Too...

Here's a neat typo

Here's a sub job for "Roving Substitute" but, either deliberately, it was entered in a rather humorous text added to the post. Enjoy! (Just how do you "rob" the entire school?)... Probably an...

It's OK, deal with it

In 21-years of subbing, I've subbed with student teachers a few times. Most, if not all, experiences have been good. I expect to basically help out a bit or teach a particular lesson, but the ST...

I do one district and about 5-schools in that district. Do about 5-6 days per month, all I need @ $140+ per day, of which I pay a "fee" of $3 to our Union for each day, and the Union is no...

Excluded

My district calls it "Excluded" and I am such with three schools, three that I don't even really want to do anyway. We are unionized (subs pay a "fee" not a "due" of $3 per day) but subs are treated...

71 - what was I thinking?

I'm 71, subbing for 21-years, semi-retired, elementary only, returning on a limited basis (5-6 days per month). Don't take long-term anymore, let alone P.E. for Junior High and H.S. What was I...

Plans

Clear plans with more work than you can ever finish. A heads-up on health related and problem kids. But, then again, I know most of the kids already for the schools at which I teach. Also, as an...

Work days

I only work about 5-6 days per month, August - May 25th or so. Just to supplement my meager Social Security income and another small pension. I live within my means in a small and old mobile home...

Rule: No politics in school. Just tell them "That's my personal choice." "I hope you've made good personal choices this week." Then move on. If they press, advise the principal's admin asst or...

I have never seen that designation (supply) for substitutes in the districts I have subbed for over two decades. I hate it when you see the plans and see "Dear, Sub."
That irks me. I've seen...

I just raise my voice if there's a problem, that works. I reward them with stickers (the younger kids), and not having to miss recess (the older kids). Yelling is not good for me or them but it is...

No. I'd rather keep a good relationship with any teachers who strike than take money to sub in their place. The opportunity has never arisen for me, thankfully. But, no, I would not.

"Please follow plans exactly."

That is inexcusable, they could have written a nicer note. Personally I wouldn't sub at that school (High School) for any jobs, and would let the principal know why I wouldn't (in fact I would scan...

Primary educator

I teach primary students predominantly, actually all the time as a sub, 2-3 days per week. I prefer 2nd and 3rd grade classes but will do 4th, 5th if I know the classes through Roving assignments. ...

Semi-retired sub

I hate the fact that districts allow Aesop (now Absence Management) to "sell" their services for that Jobulator app. However, if subs work at several districts and lots of schools it could come in...

Bear with it

This is my 20th year of subbing (I am a 70-year old male and look it, so that alone makes them take notice and behave a little better; I rely on the age intimidation factor of course). I just accept...

Still 1/2 day

I believe it's still 1/2 day since your district should pay you by the 1/2 or full day not by the hour. Haven't seen this yet since Aesop was switched to "Absence Management" (formerly Aesop), still...

It doesn't work that way with my District and teachers and subs are getting pretty fed-up about requests. I had a teacher call me tonight and she wants me later this month and early October and wants...
