Last day was yesterday (5/27). I actually subbed two days this week. I did go spend the last day with the class I did long-term sub with and helped with year end activities and packing.

Maybe they don't teach band teachers to do sub lesson plans? Band was my worse class by far and much the same situation you had. It really does need to be reported when there is no roster or lesson...

This probably won't happen very often, but a good reason why I keep a puzzle book in my teacher bag, also a magazine.

You could have asked about helping the library, sometimes they need books...

I would bet that every teacher in that building already knows this is a poor teacher and the principal also. Any teacher that has gotten her student the following year would know and that kind of...

I was going to suggest a similar thing, do the problems on the board as a race (two teams or however you want to break it down). Maybe while two are at the board working on the problem the rest do...

I have to disagree about the calculators. Yes, you can use a calculator, just like we could use spell check for spelling. But not having the foundation of your multiplication affects all the rest...

I did Census last March and I know a LOT of people working now. The main thing to expect is for the job assignment to not take near as long as they tell you.

Here the kids all head down to the gym and pick up the backpacks and come back right when we are getting ready to line up, so that the backpacks stay right there with the child. This eliminates them...

I am surprised they don't have subs doing this more since we wouldn't feel the need to "encourage" a student (the test scores don't reflect on us like it does on the teachers). And it would give...

Could there be more to this? I am going to assume the poster picked up on other cues from the student teacher than just the fact that the one was sent out.

Yes, I would sub even with some bruising still showing. It will probably take a couple weeks for that to really be gone.

I would wait until I was 100% sure I wasn't dizzy anymore, and yes, wait...

I just worked the day before Spring Break. We don't have school tomorrow (teachers have a work day to post grades). They were NUTS! And I had to be the "mean sub" today to get things done.

Seems like it would be a hassle for a school district to keep up a minimum requirement for subs. There will be times when you need MORE subs and if you have bumped them off because they weren't...

I had a teacher attach lesson plans to the AESOP listing. That was helpful but it was so unusual that I didn't realize it until I was AT school. I wish more teachers would pick up on this option,...

It is also a smaller community so now your neighbor, cousin, and postal worker know what you make. I learned it doesn't pay to be a secretary, building aide, or para in our district. I think it was...

To try to do what you did with the teacher you have to be on the computer at the same time ready to snag it. We played that game when we first got AESOP here (before the secretaries finally agreed...

I have a question. Were the teachers only gone a half day?? The classes didn't get two different subs in one day did they?

It was the HS that played this game (and probably still does). I don't...
