Despite that secretary's nasty attitude, it looks like you got your answer. Many elementary schools like to hire regular "building subs" since those jobs are harder to fill. I doubt you were actually...

The crazy thing is my district states the opposite in their letter. Their letter says there is no guarantee your services will be needed the following school year. I think that would help people...

During the school year, I try to save at least 15-20% of every paycheck for the summer into a savings account, and try not to take more out than I put in during the year. I also participate in as...

True Sublime. But my point is that many people cannot live on their own from many jobs. Some full time regular teachers tell me they wouldn't be able to live on their own without a secondary spouse...

LOL...I actually got rid of my car last year. I live in an area where there are a lot of public buses anyway, so it really saved me a bundle of money without the car insurance, maintanance, etc..I...

It would be nice if you all mentioned the State where you work. I think sub pay varies a lot by state. I believe CA and NY pay the highest ($150-$200/day) and more rural areas get paid the least...

Every school year is different though. That same nightmare classroom last year can be a very nice group of students this year and vice versa. Normally Sept - Nov. is the time to get a feel for which...

I have already seen several jobs show up, starting back in July. But I was asked to do a full time long term gig starting the first day of the year, so I told them yes. It would be a nice way to pay...

I work almost every school day and paid extra for long term jobs, so about $15,000 combined with all my districts. I also do a lot of focus groups, sports betting, and research studies on the side...

For me, my day becomes much easier when I am not the strict bulldog. I sub mostly at the HS level and rather than having every student gang up on me with zero admin support, I tend to give them their...

The main district I work in did not raise their sub pay in over 10 years, and finally starting in Sept., we will be getting $100/day. It is a $10 per diem raise, which will surely make a big...

I dont let them get away with it. Like I said above, I do remind them they have work to get done and I do document to the teacher those who refuse to obey and dont do their work. If I know their...

Let me start off by saying that in HS level, our job is NOT to make students do their work. They are old enough by HS age (even MS age) to know the consequences of not doing their work. I also...

Had To Do Video Quiz Once, But Not Again

This seems to fall into a gray area where I work in NJ. One of my districts required us to watch two short videos on harrassment and bullying, and take two short quizes after each video (unpaid, but...

Very strange because in my case I did not even have to change a thing for my sub alerts app even though I had to change my Frontline login and password back in April or May.

Yes, that makes sense. I apologize because it was very ignorant of me to just assume these students cannot be AP material. If ADHD was diagnosed when I was going to school, I think I would have been...
