I'd do it gladly

Especially now that they are installing self-closing doors that are kept locked. We don't get keys as subs. The other day, I "borrowed" the key and told the secretary that if someone needed it, send...

It's more of a toaster oven size. It's not the kettle style. I use in constantly. There are only two of us, so I didn't get the bigger one. I made "fried" pork chops and my husband said he'd never...

PBIS done properly

My middle school tried implementing PBIS years and years ago - went all in. It was a disaster. Then a new asst. principal was hired who'd been in charge at his old school. What a difference! We went...

My SIL would do the same thing if she had FB

I live next door to her on the same farm, across the driveway. I've been going through my cancer journey since March and she knows nothing! It's become my personal mission for her to NOT find out...

A couple I play

Sudoku and Candy Crush. Candy crush is good, because you can only play five games at a time, and then you have to wait for more lives. Sudoku gets my mind off my worries when my body is exhausted,...

I think you were very professional. We had a retired teacher, who is a good friend, sub after retirement. She did cancel too many times, and while not blocked, was replaced in a couple of instances....

My dad was a principal

This was a long time ago, when we kids were young. He went back into the classroom because he worked long hours with meetings and dealing with school stuff. He wanted to have time for his family....

2/3 there (maybe TMI)

Only 8 more radiation treatments (if I counted correctly) Starting to show "sunburn". And my nipple is taking the brunt of it. Thank heavens for medicated lotion. Good news is that the armpit is fine...

I use the student restrooms (only sub grades 6-12). On occasion, I am lucky enough to use the staff bathrooms, which are locked all the time and I usually don't have a key. Times when I have access,...

I didn't push it, as I already had four days booked. She said that if she needs a sub again, she'll message me and if I am available, have the secretary assign me. A lot of the high school teachers...

Fart machine? Really?

At least I picked up a job from this incident. I had planned to work for a teacher for three days. A personal day today, and (later) two professional days. She asked me, so that her students would...

2/7 done!

Or...just finished radiation #6 out of 21. Anybody who has nursed a baby has probably felt the pain I am having. Remember when the baby was learning how to latch on? Remember the soreness? It's been...

my district

As a certified teacher, 20+ years ago, I got sub teacher pay. But now? Nope. $8.25 an hour unless its a one-one aide. Then it's $9.25 an hour. I don't take aide sub jobs now.

Iím blocking off lots of days

Smaller district. I just put in family obligations or medical(breast cancer and thyroid issues);and have had no problems. It helps that they are desperate for subs.

One option

I can select to not take calls for subbing, only get them off of Frontline. I donít do that, because I only sub for one district and only at the middle and high school. So there are rarely calls I...

The case of the missing English teacher

Last week, I subbed one day for a new teacher who was a late hire. There had been one sub the first two days of school, and she was supposed to be there on Wednesday. So I subbed. With a little...

I was partly right.

They had a sub for the new teacher for the first two days of school. She was supposed to start today, but didn't. The previous sub was in for another teacher today, so caught me up. They had gone to...

High school English as an additional support teacher. I'm thinking that it might be for the open position and that the sub they have is going to be gone. Or it could be special ed, but those usually...

At least my district does. In theory, preferred subs get an hour of notice before it goes out to all subs. There are kinks in this system, though. I've gotten notices and immediately went to accept...
