@Kahula

Thanks.

Didn't bother leaving feedback because they could turn it around and blame me.

As a sub we are expendable and sometimes admin don't want to deal with the "whiners."

I've got around 200 right now but they're mostly teacher assistant and/or technology jobs.

No plans left, no log ins

Subbing rant. Day from hell.

Was left no plans of any kind the other day.

Haven't had that happen in a long time.

It's a lot worse to be left no plans during this era of remote learning. ...

Technology burnout.

Way back in the early 70's, Orson Welles narrated a documentary that was basically prophetic.

It was called "Future Shock," and the theme was how dystopian and unfulfilling life will eventually...

She sounds like a sociopath. Good idea documenting her comments. That is not normal or appropriate. If I were principal I'd give her a verbal warning and/or write her up.

Zoom/Google Meets, the evil necessity

Virtual learning is the creepiest thing I've ever seen in the education field.

I understand it's 100% necessary, but we see way too much personal "behind the scenes" family moments.

I miss the...

This is exactly the reason teachers need to be paid more.

Some of the crap (or urine) we have to put up with is a joke.

Everything is harder right now.

I feel like I took a lot for granted before the evil virus hit.

Feeling tired is an understatement.

Wearing a mask keeps you from possibly infecting the kids or other teachers.

I imagine some parents would not be happy to hear your attitude on this.

Ugh.

Parents already had WAY too much power to micromanage before remote learning.

Now we're basically their servants.

Google Meet and Zoom classrooms stink.

This will not end well.

When I was a kid no one cared if a teacher had "pep" or not. They just cared if they were fair and did their job.

You'd think at a time like this they'd try to give teachers LESS to worry about.

A Zoomed office would be all kinds of crazy.

Now I'm thinking of The Office. Lol.

Agree it's temporary and not designed to "spy" on us, I just really resent the idea of my in-person teaching being watched in a parent's living room.
