Writing a referral

I had to write a referral today for this one kid who would not stop being disruptive & negative. I tried being diplomatic & professional, but he just wouldn't stop. Once I showed him the referral I...

P.E. Cliches

I normally don't sub for P.E. classes (mainly because I didn't register for the subject & all the liability issues (fights) attached with 50+ middle school kids in one class), but an opportunity came...

I definitely would not have given the boy a pretzel. Just by saying he didn't get along with subs & by refusing to participate are red flags in my book. I remember being in a 7th grade geography...

If anything, I gave the teacher respect for the work they assigned their students. And all the notes left by the various subs were almost as "ambitious" as mine and left the same message.

I don't like any P.E. classes either, especially H.S., but I can tolerate P.E. with regular ED middle school students & adaptive P.E. with moderate-severe kids is cool (because I work with the same...

Unless those teachers were close personal family or friends of mine, the last thing I'd want is an administrator, teacher and even aides from eying my FB or any other social networking page. I've...

I couldn't agree more with how many (not all) teachers negative attitudes rub off on some students. Imagine having an arrogant 7th grader or some self-absorbed high school freshman telling you that...

Always being in a defensive position as a sub, I always demand some sort of proof that a teacher is calling the student(s) out of class. I've made it a personal policy never to believe students if...

Competing with other subs for assignments.

The other day when I subbed for a middle school class, the first thing I noticed was that 2 other subs left their contact info on the teacher's desk. It made me mad because it seems like this teacher...
