Forbes magazine just published a list of the most underpaid professions. The author of the article left out substitute teachers, thereby revealing himself to be completely clueless. I know for...

Anything up to 3.75 hours is a half day. Over 3.75 hours is a full day. I once had an aide job at which I was supposed to be relieved at the 3.75 hour mark. However, the person who was supposed to...

My district runs a pre-school, and I've had the experience of being assigned to middle school and then switched to the pre-school at the last minute for a day that involved dealing with bathroom...

I don't like the attitude that subs aren't teachers. I think of myself as a part-time very versatile teacher. I thnk if subs were considered teachers and treated accordingly by school staffs, our job...

I must be old. I wear a watch. And I find when there is no clock in an elementary classroom, students will inquire as to what the time is. In middle and high school, students just sneak a peek on...

Yes, I can do it -- that is, show up, and attempt to do my job. For the benefit of those students with an interest in learning something, I do my best to follow whatever lesson plan is left for me....

My district requires teachers to keep a folder with emergency lesson plans. I've only been kept completely in the dark one time -- a two-day assignment at the end of the school year in a 5th grade...

I've been at this for ten years too, and I don't think I'm imagining that every year students are becoming progressively less disciplined and more unruly. I sub in a small, wealthy So. Calif....

About the California sick pay law

I was unaware of it until I read about it here not long ago. I then verified with my district's human resources department that I do, indeed, have 24 hours banked (the most the district allows). It...

I personally prefer middle school, especially 6th and 7th grade. By then kids are beyond tattling, don't require micromanaging, and haven't yet acquired the surly, rude know-it-all attitude I've come...

I've never been invited, though I don't think anyone would say anything if I helped myself. I live just a few minutes away from the schools where I sub, and I generally go home at lunchtime. I never...

High school + Last Week of School = Nightmare

Chances are you won't be blocked from that school, so don't sweat it. High school kids love giving subs a hard time. I took high school assignments...

I live in an area of Southern Calif. where a 40 year old tract house commands $700K+. The local school district average fulltime teacher's salary is $80K plus generous benefits. Most of the old...

The law states you must be paid for time worked. It is not at the discretion of the employer whether or not to pay you. They have to pay you for hours worked, and you are well within your rights to...

Is that what those things are called?

Every middle school boy has one and despite my many warnings to put them away or I'll take them away, they find ways to spin them anyhow. Nasty little toys.

I'm with you. This year can't end...

Sirsubalot, that is classic foot dragging.

Never ceases to amaze how a school district will do whatever it can to avoid paying subs as long as possible.

I read the law today. The illness can be that of the employee or a relative the...

I subbed in high school for 6 years before vowing never to go back. It is mostly a babysitting job in which a sub is required to play police officer -- keep them in their seats for 90 minutes (block...

Yes, Longtime Sub, it is frustrating.

The district provides subs zero benefits, and, then, when the state decides we are worthy of some sick time, they hide it from us. Bad enough we are the lowest of the low on the totem pole, but this...

Bandnstrings, you are on to something.

I sub in a small suburban district -- one high school, one middle school, and three elementary schools. In the middle school, the newly hired music teacher is married to a longtime social studies...

My So. Calif. district has never informed subs about this law, and, I suspect, if we tried to use it, they'd fight like hell not to pay us.

I am in my 9th year of subbing.

i like the flexibility and being able to decide when and, to some extent, where I will work. It's not a bad part-time job for someone who doesn't need a fulltime position or a good salary. Not having...

In California subs are in a no win situation.

Public employees are almost always represented by unions that determine members' salaries and benefits. Wage and hour laws that govern the private sector do not apply to public employees. However,...
