I got the impression at substitute training that remote assignments won't be an option. If the teacher is out, he will give them work to do for the days he's out. When we are in school though, we are...

First day, first call.

First day of school in my smallest district, and I get a call. It's not even a hard to fill subject like gym or special ed. This does not bode well for students but is encouraging for substitutes. I...

I meant teacher desks, not kids' desks. Teachers will have a cart with their supplies. It also has a pull out table to put their laptops on. I'm sure they're not happy about this change. Back in the...

I don't want to be Covid Cop

I do plan to sub in a school next year, but my question is will schools pull us out of the classroom and make us mask monitors, social distancing directors in the hallways, cleaners the whole day? Do...

I will be subbing! They have increased the pay to 125 a day in one of my districts. Whether they will have in-person classes is yet to be determined.

I got mine, but this year it says all subs must have active certification. I checked it anyway. It's a large district - I'm hoping they won't notice.

In PA, you have to take two 3-credit courses...

Why would they need subs if the parent(s) is home? Oh, that's right , we're the babysitter if the parent needs to leave.

I think they will have to cut staff, but they will always need a certified substitute teacher to cover absences. They saved money on subs these past 3 months. And subs come with no benefits, no...

Are teachers actually teaching?

In my conversations with students online and on the phone, it seems very few receive more than 10-20 minutes of instruction. Lessons are brief, most of the class consists of completing assignments.

I would try to reach the governor on this. I know he does a weekly call-in show. I hope you get something. The numbers don't look good. Looks like school is not resuming until September. :(

And they may not reopen until after Labor Day, according to some reports. I fear some parents will be up in arms if they reopen March 30, which increasingly seems an unrealistic date.

It's better to work the morning am. Sometimes they'll ask you to fill in for the rest of the day if someone gets sick and has to leave. On two occasions when I took a PM half day, they called to...
