I have a degree and do not get offended if I have to do things like bus or car line duty, or make photocopies or whatever. Yes, these things are often done by assistants, but they are also done at...

I am actually surprised at how seldom they call on me to do extra duty or extra jobs. I figure I am scheduled for that time, and they should use me. Instead I more often get the situation where the...

All the districts I work in have in their directions to subs that we should not be within 6 feet of anyone else for more than 15 minutes. Which would mean then that they don't have to tell you if...

Being able to take days or half days off is the best perk of our job. Do not feel guilty about taking mental health days for yourself!

I've been working almost every day this school year, in WI which is a hot spot. Some of my assignments have been just like you describe. I'd love it if we had an increase in wages like that!

I've been subbing in 6 districts so far in Wisconsin. I'm signed up with more, but some are virtual. We've had lots of cases. I've subbed for teachers who are quarantining, and have had many classes...

Could you do the experiments as demonstrations? Sometimes that's a better way anyway, imo.. because you can explain things as you go. And they probably will still be interested. You could always say...

I know that I reject jobs a lot, and I was under the understanding that it wasn't an issue. I also schedule a lot of non-work days. I'm out of the country at least 3 weeks every winter, and often...

In my state also, we are not entitled to any breaks. I'm pretty sure I've always gotten at least a 25 minute lunch break. Usually there is another break somewhere during the day, but not always.

Ugh -- I would think the only reason you need to give is that you have realized that you do not want to do long terms, that you want to do single day assignments. And it's the truth!
