I think the regular teacher's pet(s) can definitely be the most manipulative. (If you don't play along with their tactics, they turn on you. )

As far as favorites, I think we all will prefer...

Structure is key

Thank you! MaineSub brings up a very good point. Kids (including teens) need structure. I've also taught 1st and 2nd grade classes where an older class comes in to do buddy reading . As long as...

My concern is about the helpers, such as the 8th grader I mentioned, who are cocky, disrespectful, and belligerent because they feel they don't have to answer to a "sub". The younger students then...

Yep...see that a lot in elementary school lesson plans. But I've learned that it's usually no solution. Either the office doesn't pick up when I call or the child returns after 10 minutes...

Yep...I've noticed that too. Some schools are a nightmare for a sub, and then they wonder why they don't get good subs or enough subs? It's a vicious cycle.

For some reason, the office...

Principals do visit

I've subbed in elementary schools for several districts and have gotten used to drop in visits from principals or VPs. It's just something they commonly do as part of making the rounds.
