I know this is a very late reply, but I have to look at this situation in awe.

Let me get this straight: These students are "protesting" you by trying to fail?

Not the brightest bulbs, these...

I don't understand employers.

Being "overqualified" to run a register is the ultimate catch 22. LOL

That's like saying you can't be employed as a pilot for a commercial airline because you have...

1. Please don't assume I know all the rules of the school if I'm subbing. I work at your school only a few times a month.

2. I do not want to get involved with drama. That's why I might not...

It's the only profession I can think of where you're penalized for trying to avoid being physically assaulted.

Faculty room

The faculty room is a place I avoid like the plague.

Talk about gossip.

SPED field is a mess

This is the BIG problem with SPED.

No one is allowed to protect themselves or other students for fear of liability.

I'm not saying "fight back" against a student going crazy, I'm just saying...

I'd be so tempted to tell the parent:

"What don't you understand? The student didn't win the award. What do you want ME to do about it?"

Mean response, sure. But satisfying.

First off, let me preface this by saying I hate subbing math.

Second, I also hate when there's no answer key. You'd think teachers would want to leave one. Many do not surprisingly. They assume...

When I had my own classroom I never had to deal with such privileged parents.

These days they really don't understand how school works.

Due dates aren't there as a suggestion...

@always summer

You really support yelling at another teacher in front of students?

You don't think it's unprofessional and sets a poor example while undermining staff?

Lol, yikes......

Send them to the office

"If this student gives you any problems, don't hesitate to send them to the office."

If I had a quarter for every time I read that in the lesson plans I'd be very wealthy.

My question is this: ...

I've noticed some teachers have been particularly vindictive lately.

Perhaps the end of the year stress and pressure are driving them crazy.

Subbing can be a very thankless job.

Like artlady said, seems like we mostly hear about the negative.

The only times I feel appreciated are when I find out I'm a preferred sub.

Sadly - even being a "preferred sub" on aesop means...

I've been there.


Sometimes you just don't fit into the school culture or way of thinking. And sometimes the staff are just in their snobby cliques.

This situation sounds like the latter of the two.

I used to be a fan of them.

I liked being able to leave after the morning and take care of errands.

But I always disliked afternoons... Felt like I was entering other people's drama from the...

Checked... If I tried that it'd be for two different districts and times would overlap.

I'll see a 7:30-11:15 in one district, and then 10:45-2:30 in another.

Enough with the half day assignments...

This week is the dreaded return from spring break.

I've seen nothing but half days for the week so far. Either that, or "bus driver" or "maintenance" assignments.

Looks like I'm going to be...

Honestly, we serve no function when "monitoring" the cafeteria...

I wouldn't sub for elementary PE even if I was promised $1,000.

Sounds like liability.

I don't get paid enough to deal with such dangerous liability.

To pee or not to pee

That is the question.

I'll tell you right now. If nature calls, I'm not risking an embarrassing situation.

Either staff covers for me when I need to go badly, or I'm bringing a diaper and...

You are absolutely correct about systemic racism in schools. Well put. :cool:

Many schools hide behind the lie they're letting the students "express their own world views."

Happens to me a lot.

Wish they'd cancel in advance instead of wasting our day. Annoying indeed.
