Thanks for the replies. Closing statement.

Nice to experience any form of solace during these anxious and isolating days.

I think some tea and sympathy is what many of us could use right now dealing with this unstable, at times, callous...

A rotten deal, no doubt. Sorry to hear that. Not cool.

@njsub

You're lucky and I am certainly jealous of your situation.

I still get full classes on occasion and plenty of behaviors. Particularly abuse of bathroom use and fooling around in the hallways. ...

@Aillya

Well summarized, as always.

I'm shocked at how in-denial so many schools are.

And some of the students, as expected, do not take social distancing seriously at all. Makes me feel like some...

@ima teacher

Yeah, all involved are suffering immensely. No question.

However, subs are particularly in the dark here. (As we have been with unemployment rights, but that's a whole different beast.)

Subbing is a joke right now.

I know remote learning is certainly no picnic for full time teachers, but it's getting to the point where the job is so aimless, monotonous, and repetitive I'm having a hard time staying awake. And...

I see what submarine24 is saying.

I completely agree how unhealthy schools have become during the pandemic.

And I don't mean the obvious reasons.

I've subbed for P.E. recently. The kids only got around 15 minutes of actual...

@Nietzsche

I've thought about waking out the door on several occasions, but never had the guts to do it.

Your point is a good one.

If subs protested against crummy conditions and treatment, I bet some...

Terrible day.

That's like my worst fears all in one day.

I got stuck in traffic once due to a car accident and the school banned me for being late. I even called to let them know I'd be late...

Do not return to this childish district again. I wouldn't.

Some schools don't realize it, but we're aware of how they treat us. And if treatment is condescending or dismissive we don't...

I think the "don't have to wear a mask" exception changed after the CDC found out the virus is super airborne.

Remember, the rules change everyday with Covid. It's an incredibly volatile...

Funny how they always seem to know how to work the computer when it's video game and YouTube free time. LOL

That's a bit extreme of them.

They should make it mandatory to wipe down the microwave after each use, but not seeing how nuking a coffee is going to be a sanitary concern.

Cruel and unnecessary. What on earth was she thinking?

Agreed.

The pay disparity in the education field is absurd. We're expected to do the same job as a lead teacher for $100 a day (before taxes are deducted.)

But what gets me most is the...

That was quite the post. I enjoyed reading and agree with a lot.

Can especially relate to the laid off in March and left in the dark as a sub stuff.

As a sub, full time teachers only really frustrate me when they:

B. Don't leave any plans at all. (Biggest pet peeve since we get in trouble or banned for not...

You took the words right out of my mouth with that post.

Shocking how left in the dark we were after the virus hit.

We're definitely viewed as expendable disposable humans as subs.

I get junk mail and texts.
