Most classes I sub in have a warm up or bell ringer that the kids are expected to come in and get started on. I usually give them a minute or two to come in, get settled, socialize under the guise of...

I don't have anxiety, necessarily, but it IS a concern. I am VERY aware it can and does happen.

I, too, am in a room that isn't locked...often. Really doesn't matter, though, because like someone...

I do the 5-4-3-2-1 thing also. 5 usually has to be pretty louder and I get progressively quiter. By 1, I need silence. It works in middle school, not sure about high school.

Recently, our schools had cameras installed in every classroom. Not hidden security cameras that record vague, distorted images, but...

A master's degree? I know very few full time classroom teachers with a master's in their subject area. Why on Earth would a sub be required to have one?!?

And to the OP...I'd resign. I would tell...

I mostly do long terms. Lesson plans aren't typically left for me and I don't have a degree in anything education related, so what I've learned, I've learned by trial and error, and learning from...

Frontline...what?!

Got a text this morning from a teacher needing me for a week in March. Before telling her yes, I checked AESOP (Frontline, whatever) to make sure I didn't already have a job on those days. When I...

In a similar situation currently

You need sort of a reset. On Monday you need to start the week off on the right foot. They need to know what your expectations are, and your consequences for not meeting those expectations. Always...

I would not have deleted it. I do not get paid enough as a substitute teacher to let someone tell me how to conduct myself in my personal life. Social media falls under the category of "my personal...

95% of the time I work in middle school and in our district, teachers have to eat with the kids. The teachers all sit at one table.

I stand by my statement on another thread that subbing can be a thankless job. It can!! We're the low people on the school system totem pole, we are poorly paid, we don't get sick days or benefits,...

I am not above bribery the week before break, believe me!! The way their regular teacher describes them, though, I'm afraid even that won't work.

Personally, I would not do a job that makes me miserable. Subbing is a thankless job most of the time, doesn't pay well and doesn't provide benefits that make the job worth it. There is no way I...

A little off topic, but lately I've noticed every time I read a post from you, I'm thinking "hey, I do that too!"

This time it's the "at least PRETEND to be working, please." More often I tell...

Aesop is sloooooowwwwwwww

I don't use it all that often but I don't have a job today so I was trying to see what was out there. Good grief it's almost unusable. It loads like I'm using dial-up from 1996. Several times I got...

If the teacher is "awful" and is going to be retiring anyway, I would venture a guess that administration is already well aware of what goes on in her classroom.

I know this isn't what you want...

They may not go the bathroom when I'm teaching. Don't even ask. When I'm done and they're doing independent work, that's the time. I tell them if they can't hold it that long, I'm sending them to the...
