Thank you all.

To answer some of your questions, yes, I'm in therapy. So was he for a bit for depression but that seemed to resolve itself and he is no longer depressed. He has no physical or emotional obstacles...

Whoa, whoa, whoa!

Are you saying that if a teacher or school cancels on you last minute, that you donít get paid? Thatís so wrong! In every district Iíve worked, if I show up for an assignment, and it is either...

I deplore working past Memorial Day

But I did anyway. All week. Ugh.

Kids are crazy, teachers are grumpy, even the normally pleasant front office staff are terse.

Game of Thrones (Fair warning: spoilers!)

Iíve loved the series until recently and have read all the available books. Iíve been enthralled with their choices since they have veered away from the books.

Thank you for your help

Sub14, thank you so much for your information. Iíve looked further into it, and it does not seem like my cup of tea.

Anyone supplement their income in the summer teaching online? Anyone use VIPKID? Experiences? Pros? Cons?

Sandy Hook

When Sandy Hook occurred and nothing changed, that was when we said, itís okay to kill our children. It is a harsh reality. It is happening so often now, we are becoming desensitized.

I feel your anxiety

Our realtor, who was lovely, would text or call me and leave a message, ďI have to talk to you.Ē WTH?

I read a saying somewhere: Donít tell me you have to talk to me later. I have anxiety. ...

Lunch Duty

I was assigned 7th grade lunch duty yesterday. Talk about painful. Loud. Chaotic. Did I say loud?

Has anyone ever refused this or a similar request? What happened?

Want me back?

Then maybe make sure your teachers are more appreciative and helpful.

We had testing this morning for two hours. And yes, I went before my students arrived. But after an hour or so, I really had...

Proper pronouns

I always feel so bad when I donít use the proper pronoun for a student. Twice now Iíve called a girl a boy because I honestly could not tell from the clothing or stature. Middle school is so tough....

Itís the music

And the message behind it. Music, like literature, touches our souls. It stirs up our emotions. Music can take us back to high school, or to a childhood memory that weíve forgotten. Bagpipes are...

A different perspective

I agree with the other posts, but wanted to offer a different perspective.

Teacher aides

I adore substitute teaching special education, but why is it that the teacher I am subbing for tells me that the aides will help me out, but then the aides just stand there and gossip while I do all...

She definitely overstepped

But I wouldnít do anything about it.

I have seen this behavior

From school secretaries before, but not from all of them.

I donít think it has anything to do with schooling but more with their position or, even more so, their personality. If the school...

I get notified every morning

Which school Iíll be at and which teacher I will be subbing for. Thatís stressful but the pay is decently more.

So itís like a regular sub job just the district gets to choose where I go.

Any floating subs in here?

So, I have taken a job as a floating sub at a new district. This means that the district gets to choose where to send me, ie, to which middle or high school I am needed.
