With you!

We're fortunate that we have an excellent school nurse... the office will occasionally handle minor boo-boos with bandaids and icepacks but they do NOT substitute for a qualified nurse. These can be...

Thanks... interesting stuff!

Thanks, everyone... I too am surprised at the bigger fonts for the kids--at least until I think about it. I do a lot of reading with second and third graders and notice that many kids seem to...

Font size on handout material...?

I'm curious about what size (and type) of fonts folks are using for handouts and worksheets. There seems to be a tendency towards large sizes? I also teach adult classes and am running into what I...

Interesting discussion... I would distinguish...

Interesting discussion... I would distinguish between correcting and grading. I've never been asked to grade. I think "correcting" goes with the territory, at least informally. But I can't ever...

Drawing lines...

First, I will share that I too like to be busy and helpful... I occasionally get asked to sub in the resource room and while it's not particularly "toxic" it can be challenging with lots of down-time...

It depends...

Obviously, it depends on age/grade but my general approach is to follow the regular classroom practice until or unless it becomes problematic--then we (the class or individual) and I deal with that...

RolandJS...

I honestly don't remember for sure... it seems like it was either a recommendation to use candy as a motivator or a suggestion to bring our own worksheets. They (STEDI) seem very disconnected from...

When am I not new?

I would suggest some sort of structure or loose timeline. We had a student join us who had been homeschooled and several of us made her an informal project, in the sense of "keeping an eye on her."...

Not exactly...

I occasionally feel disconnected because I'm not always aware of things such as changes in school policy, plans, etc. but that feels (to me, anyway) different than being isolated. It probably helps...

Don't miss...

I've been following this... and while several have noted that the partner teacher may be the source of the problem, I haven't seen much mention of the fact that the parent (Mom) also works for the...

Only more questions...

I also teach adults in courses that require online work. I've found that students work very differently... some get the work done quickly and even work ahead... others successfully procrastinate...

Yep!

That paper is a keeper! Congratulations... and thanks to the teacher who was thoughtful and sent it to you.

Just have to add...

I'll be pretty much in line with the majority... there are different kids and different coats and different weather conditions. In general, we like the kids to have appropriate clothing: hats (or...

I'm a rare high school sub... but when I do, my situation is perhaps a bit unique. I'm in a small district and have known (and subbed with) most of the kids since kindergarten. So while it's still a...

A little background...

It might be important to consider that STEDI is ultimately trying to sell a textbook and online course... at one time they were considered the gurus of subbing. But they truly haven't "kept up" and...

I can sympathize...

As a sub, I have to deal with these varied standards constantly... the hard ones for me are behavioral... I have trouble understanding why a teacher thinks they can allow violations of school policy...

Honesty...

Honesty seems to work. "I can do the first day but that's all" might be acceptable, if there's a way in the system to communicate that.

I've actually had the opposite happen... a one-day...

Yay for progress!

I'm curious about the age of the child... and must agree with the possibility LillyBabe has suggested. Not only is it an attention-seeking behavior, it also could be getting him off the hook, so to...

Sure...

I think... not sure what the policy is on self-promotion which is not, certainly my intent. Nor do I mean to hijack this thread... note that the book was written toaccompany a workshop I teach and...

Just a thought...

This is not a judgement regarding this specific post or situation, but one reason a sub asks questions is to avoid responsibility. If the situation turns worse, they can say they did what they were...

Luv2teach2017

Luv2teach, we just might be kindred spirits.



I would add that the teachers know the difference as well. I think we sometimes get so focused on the differences that we (subs and regular) forget...

Thanks for some very interesting and thought-provoking comments. Several observations come to mind... I do certainly understand and agree that words often carry a stigma with them. I'm just not sure...

Sounds like our situations are similar...

The office person who would most likely handle this would be nice but very firm. I can hear her pleasantly saying "You'll have to make an arrangement... there isn't anyone here available... who else...

A rose by any other name...

Here's an opinion piece from my blog... offered as something to think about. (I teach a Substitute Teacher Workshop and have written a handbook for it... that's why I received the message mentioned.)...
