We do a lot of inclusion here - especially this year with our district going totally Title 1. That said - its really hard as a sub - even one that everyone knows to act as the inclusion teacher. ...

I'm feeling your pain

I had a teacher call me at home to sub for her a couple of weekends ago - I told her that I wasn't sure since I had to get my car in the shop - it was really acting up. Still - how do you get your...

"Nothing was found amiss"????????

Seriously - Who thought there is nothing amiss when preschoolers know enough to perform oral sex. Obviously they got the idea from somewhere. My gosh!

Most districts here give subs their plan just like the teacher. One district asks us to mark the papers that were done while we were there if at all possible. I do that but I won't stay late. Also...

In defense of women

I have a couple of rules I live by in MS (which I actually love). First of all, I'm always really firm to the point of being strict. That said, I treat the kids like they really matter and already...

Omg

My gosh - there's one for "Just when you thought you've been disrespected in every way as a sub . . . " I swear I should keep a notebook of moments like that. I agree with the suggestion to have a...

Me Too!

I love subbing - after 7 years I'm still not tired of it. The negatives (not enough respect from adults) I've learned to take in stride. I've found that a lot of mean little people are out there. ...

Thank you ciounoi

After you posted that - I put them on my computer and they made my life so much easier. What I do is that since my computer is centrally located in the house - I just leave that browser up to...

Kelly

Kelly gives two forms of bonuses - they give out Kudo points for different things. These points are equal to one dollar used on their website of tons of stuff. I only buy gift cards on there though...

I'm pretty anal about being on time and schedules which works out well for subbing. Still there was one time when the art teacher called and said - Ah Nina? I said yesssss - Did you forget they...

The zen of getting their attention

My two favorites for this age were already mentioned - I use the countdown method for transitions when they aren't moving fast enough. Everyone loves the bit of rush rush and the shot of adrenaline....

I carry a log calendar too - it always made my life easier. Plus that way I always have a record where I was and when. That said - my favorite district switched to Kelly Services to handle the subs...

I do some half days - like today - because it lends some balance into my life. Sometimes having 3 hours off to myself really helps my frame of mind. I feel like its a treat! I even took a half day...

The thing about Paras is that they can try to tattle on YOU. Twice in 7 years I've had paras that tried to tell the teacher about my behavior. I was NOT pleased because neither story was accurate...

I agree with Prairie girl - remember that kids - especially the little ones - can really be thrown off with a sub. If a child is not on task and not disrupting the classroom - I try to bring them...

12 is my Record too!

I do roving usually once or twice a month. We have a centralized elementary school here with 8-10 classes of each level. I usually fill in 20 - 40 minutes each classroom. I don't mind since most...

My perfect week is when I have a day or two at each level.

If I'm at one level too long this is what happens - I play bad cop at the high school all day and don't really teach (because most the...

I've always thought Kindergarten was the most challenging day. After a while you just get the hang of how to get a lesson through to the kids - or how to get them to do something when they are...

What a teacher told me. . .

That's something that goes along with subbing - you never really get any feedback on how you're doing. That used to worry me - coming from employment where you got evaluations every 6 months. I...

I've found that I love middle school the best too. I think its because everyone has gotten to know that I'm not taking of any of their crap but I still have time to listen. I like that the...

Tooooooooo Funny!

Been there - done that! It hasn't happen often but once in a while I'll get plans like that - even when the teacher knows I'll be there that day. My favorite though are plans that say - Centers -...

Of course, they were wrong for not letting you know that it was going to be a half day instead of a whole. Would it have been right for you to show up and all of a sudden say - oh I can't stay 4...

The mistake you made was making the whole thing personal. The kid wanted to get to you - once you let him do that - then you give him the power. Next time if a student over and over tries to...

Although I'm sure the stance you took was morally the right thing to do, it broke my #1 rule of subbing - "Always - ALWAYS - fly under the radar." Now this is just my opinion - but I've never found...
