That does sound annoying...

When I was a new Substitute, I would have liked if a seasoned substitute had offered to answer any questions. I could not imagine telling Admin in that situation that the person had "interfered with...

What I used to do...

Some of you who have been on the board for years might recall my posting this before... Although I don't work as a Substitute any more, I did the job for over 1,050 days and still check out this...

Why is it always the same word...

I guess this could be a separate post, but I always wondered why the only word teachers ever seemed to use for kids who talk too much is "chatty." Never "they're very talkative" or "They may talk too...

How I replied one time...

One day I was doing a floater day and had a fifth grade class for about an hour. The teacher wrote, "This is a great class." Well, I didn't see it. Talking out, disrespectful, etc. I wrote in my...

Everyone needs a lunch break...

Back when I worked in a corporate job and had a decent salary and full benefits package, I worked through lunch many times since the workload was such that it was either that, or stay late. However,...

Dismissal

One of my least favorite times of the day was Dismissal, because things were a bit chaotic, and kids were louder than ever. Granted, it was followed by one of my favorite times -- leaving for the...

If it's really bothering you...

If it's bothering you that much, maybe you could volunteer to help out at the school (if that's allowed), for an hour or two. Tell them that you realized that mixing up the date may have caused...

Sorry you're going through this

Sorry to hear you're so miserable. I worked as a Substitute for nine years, but to be honest, I never would have taken a Building Sub job at a school with behavior issues. A low-paying job is not...

I've corrected things too...

If it's something that's easy to correct by adding a letter, for example, I have corrected it.

Glad you weren't blocked... That would have been a ridiculous reason to block you.

More thoughts

It was frustrating when schools tried to get out of paying a full day rate for 4 hours. One time I worked a job coded from 11:30AM to 3:35PM. Got there 5 or 10 minutes early so I could talk to the...

Frustrating as usual

If you are only getting paid for half a day (where I worked, 4 hours or more were to be paid at the full day rate), then they should not ask you to work for an extra 40 minutes for free. I would have...

What bugs me...

Of course disrespect goes without saying. It's hard to imagine someone saying they don't mind when Kids are rude or disrespectful.

Immediately call for help

I substituted well over 1,000 days and only had one fistfight break out when I was the only adult in the room. It was two sixth grade boys and I called for help into the hallway. Luckily, another...

Sounds frustrating

Good luck to them finding 50 more Substitutes! Sounds like they *want* to hire 50 Substitutes, but who's to say they will be able to find them? Also, there will be no guarantee that these new...

Sorry to hear that

Sorry to hear your last day didn't go well. How annoying that they stuck you with the kids who couldn't go to the Talent Show due to their behavior. It would be so much easier to watch a Talent Show...

Not a word?

Dictionary.com does not list firey as a word, so no wonder she had trouble pronouncing it. Lol.

I never saw any Substitute or Teacher who seemed drunk. I know for me, the last thing I would want is to be even slightly off my game. Job was hard enough as it was.

Floating

I worked as a floater many times -- including every Thursday for months at one particular school. Like others have said, it has its pros and cons.

In the schools where I worked, they did not try...

My experience

Ah the dreaded pencil

If I had a dollar for every time I heard, "I don't have a pencil," "He took my pencil," "I can't find my pencil," "I broke my pencil," "I need to sharpen my pencil" etc., I'd have more money than the...
