Is it me, or do us subs simply get more colds than average? I'm on my second in nearly as many months.

I calculated it out given a different school each day; five days a week, five periods a...

Online Attendance

This year my district is expecting subs take attendance online using the classroom computer. Has anyone had experience doing this for middle and high school? My concern is how do you balance using...

Keep It Simple

I sub in middle school often and behavior is typically a challenge. My policy is simple, I only leave names for blatant disrespect to me or disruption of the lesson/others trying to work.

I work for two districts one uses Subfinder the other uses AESOP.

I think AESOP is a superior product. It allows each teacher to keep what they call a "Favorite 5", ranked by who to call first...

Nice Approach

Southern Sub, seems we are essentially collecting the same type of information. I like hearing about your method of using a downloadable calendar. I have been using google calendar for a similar...

Keeping Journals

Like others here, I have been keeping a personal daily paper journal of my subbing activity containing a description of what was accomplished, student behavior, and other notes/impressions.

This is the time of year

that I stock up on school supplies really cheaply. Not for me but for the students that come unprepared for class (High school and Middle school).

I have found that if I bring spare lined paper,...

For what its worth

I use the class seating chart to take roll. I go up and down the aisles, each student gives me their name. When it does not match the seating chart we sort out the problem. Sometimes it is an...

Simply Survive

This late in the school year administration is aware of the the bad classes for subs so I'm sure they are aware of what you are dealing with. When I have had to return to really difficult classes I...

Middle School Madness

Middle schools have a tough time finding subs, especially good ones. They were probably happy they had you, someone actually who keeps on top of the kids and relative order in the classroom. Sounds...

Loaning pencils & pens

mtnmom2011, when I was new I too was strict about things like supplying pencils. Now in my fourth year I have come to realize it makes my job go much more smoothly if I simply bring a few extra...

Is it expected that subs should accept a LT position when offered?

I covered a maternity leave last year (about 35 instruction days). It was an incredible amount of work for only five dollars an...

I have observed

more often younger subs (both genders) seem to dress unprofessionally. This really seems odd to me since they typically are seeking permanent employment with a district. I can only imagine the...

8th grade is the toughest

I feel more like a prison warden than a sub when I do 8th grade assignments. The suggestions by others do work, and I use them often. I have three categories when I list names on the board:...

I agree

Lynne94, I agree. To me a zoned out freshman is quiet and considered good behavior when so many freshmen can act so squirrely at times. And yes, that is exactly what most did during the...

Compliments from the principal like that would make my day, especially that she has noticed how often you are there. It means you are on her radar for a good reason.

I normally follow up with the...

word search

I find that a word search work sheet is a great way to keep a HS or MS class quiet and focused especially as they compete a test or other task. It can often take them the remainder of the period. I...

1st class

MsBridget', you are not alone, unfortunately the first class students are like guinea pigs because as subs we don't know all the little lesson plan details the teacher omitted.

The good thing is...

Tech Skills

I consider myself reasonably tech savvy, but perhaps not.

Today I arrived to find a lesson plan that included playing a DVD, the catch was I needed to use the computer to play the DVD.

Is it...

avoid the stress

When I first started as a HS sub I thought it was my duty to come down on anyone not working, but it became way to stressful, and just not worth getting into it with a student.

Now I just give a...
