My last day of subbing this year...

So sorry to hear about your experience. I've never not had a sub plan, and only once or twice the sub plan I got didn't cover the whole day and I had to improvise. Kids get so crazy in June though...

I have indicated for all the school divisions that I want to sub for them next year. It was done online, now they have to get back to me and let me know whether or not I will be accepted back. I hate...

jvid,

If you are sick, you are sick. Both the HR and teacher you would have replaced should understand that. If you're able to, email the teacher whose job you would have cancelled, and explain...

It's been pretty busy for me, except for 2 days that I missed because I caught bronchitis and pink eye... yeah, my last week really sucked for that reason.

Do you use Jobulator or SubAssistant or...

What a moron. I rarely have kids swear at me, even more rarely in high school, though sometimes this kind of nonsense happens. I'm glad you sent his butt down to the office, I would have done the...

I don't give kids hugs but I am big into high fives and hand shakes. If a kid wants to hug me, I'll let him/her do so and give a quick hug back/pat on the back and then move on. I do a lot of verbal...

Wow, that really must have been terrible. Being placed on a school's "do not call list" is one thing, being taken off the district must have really been difficult. I'm glad you are back on.

Being accidentally placed on a school's rejected subs list

Hi everyone.

So I was wondering if there are any jobs for a certain day of the week, and called the division sub clerk to see if she is aware of anything. The sub clerk for one of the divisions I...

I understand your frustration. Not having a detailed sub plan sucks, not having one at all really sucks. I've been sometimes in the first situation, very rarely in the second.

I agree with the...

You will be fine

You will be fine. High school is probably the easiest, though also the least exciting, level to teach. The kids will sit there and do their work, those who don't will probably skip as soon as they...
