Slower

So far this school year has been pretty busy for me. However, I have noticed it has become a bit slow this month. Perhaps with the upcoming week off, many teachers want to get as much in as...

Yes

If your district pays into disability, then yes, you can get it. If you're not sure, look on a pay stub and you'll be able to see if there are any deductions for disability (it should say "SDI"). I...

I've worn away most of my fingerprints as well. Last year I got a severe flare-up of eczema on my hands which has caused a lot of damage to my fingers (cracks, dry skin, roughness). Right now it...

I've made a few sub friends who seem to always get assignments at the same schools I do. However, there are a few who are pretty snobby. They won't even look at me (or they pretend they don't see...

My husband is constantly telling me I should think I about getting a steady job in which I have a set schedule. He doesn't understand that I chose to be a sub so I could have the flexibility to be...

I think it'd be easy

I'm in northern California and there's a good need for ESL teachers up here, and if there's a need up here I can almost guarantee you that the need is even greater in southern Cali, especially in San...

You can't get unemployment here (I'm in CA) unless you've worked during the base period for a non-school job aside from subbing. As far as maternity leave goes, you can get paid under FMLA IF your...

There's a male sub in my district that was banned from a certain middle school and rumor has it that it was due to his "hotness". Apparently he was a distraction to too many females and was...

"You're hot"

What would you say to a student who tells you this? I always have girl students come up to me to tell me they think I'm pretty. I simply say thank you (because they apparently need glasses, lol). ...

It's always nice

It's always nice when you receive some sort of thank you (makes it feel like you're doing something right!). I've received text messages saying "thank you, the kids really like you, etc." or a...

Answer the phone

It's totally your decision on whether or not you decide to answer the phone. However, I do remember at orientation when I first started subbing our trainer did make it clear that the sub coordinator...

This will be my 3rd summer teaching in a foreign exchange program. This summer we're welcoming teens from France, Norway, and Germany. It'll be nice to have my own class again. :)

I'm having the exact same problem right now too! For me it always seems to happen in the primary grades (specifically 1st grade) because there's always a kid (or 2, or 3) who likes to randomly come...
