If you honestly try your hardest and you run into a psycho teacher who cancels on you, rest assured, you're not alone! This person probably has ludicrously high standards and is difficult, hates you...

I am probably one of the most loved subs in my area by everyone, teachers and students. I won't go into detail, for whatever reason, I am and I'm not bragging.

I came from the Caribbean. We got corporal punishment in school. I despised it, was even afraid of it, but seeing the alternative in America, even at a private school, made me understand why it was...

You've hit on one of my pet peeves, some of the younger women in my generation who are prissy little know-it-alls who think they've got it all figured out. If you've ever seen "Election" and...

What do Americans have against education?

I'm still in my nightmare long-term job, though it's getting better. I just feel that sometimes, some of the kids in the rougher parts of town just do not understand what an education is for, that...

Number one, unless it is absolutely life or death, do not text or call a teacher. You're just a sub, you're not there to save the school. You're one of those people that obsess about working "bell to...

They are so desperate for subs these days he can probably easily reapply and get hired.

How to respond to "No one's listening to you"?

I've subbed for a number of years and you usually experience this in bad schools. Some kids will be talking, you'll tell them to keep it down, one kid thinks they're getting one over on you by saying...

Michigan long-term sub rules/laws

If you're uncertified, you can only be in a job for 90 calendar days, right? The school I am at can't make me stay longer than that? I'm not certified and not in the core subject I majored in.

I don't like to do this, but if the school is totally out of control, don't go there. Find the easy schools and only go there unless you're trying to get hired somewhere.
