I have telephone calls turned off so I reject very few jobs. I think as long as I sub one day a year for each district, I stay on their sub list. The outsourcing companies will likely give you the...

I agree with the other posters. I only have one district that uses the "Preferred Sub," designation. I think districts could set the system up where there is a hierarchy of who subs are notified for...

I happen to know that subs made $33/day in my school district in southwestern Pennsylvania in the 1967-68 school year. A friends mother subbed for our class and told us what she made. It sounded like...

From my student teaching and subbing experience, I can't tell you how many movies I have shown that I though were a waste of the student's time. While student teaching, I was told by my cooperating...

I subbed today and tomorrow is the last day for any district in my area. It looks like I will be done at 12:15. My problem is not the heat but the sun during extended recess.

I've found every district to have a different policy. I got retroactive pay in one district where they paid me the incremental pay on only on the days after 20 days. Another district asked me to do a...

Good point about the notification you get with SubAlert. I know I have missed jobs because I didn't click on the notification, and opened the app instead. It seems that both of them are slow to open...

I have rarely had this happen in 10 years of subbing. In some schools I wouldn't recognize the principal. I do have one middle school where the principal is great. He will stop by 2-3 times a day and...

SubAlert or Jobulator?

I'm actually running both right now. There is not a big difference between them. I like that Jobulator tells you the number of available jobs. This is helpful when there are a lot of available jobs....

I would check on what the pay is for a long term sub. I've found that every district has different policies. I recently talked to one where you have to work three months before your pay is bumped up...

Staffing companies

The following was in my local newspaper:
