Happy for you

So nice that subs in CA are getting unemployment!

I live in SC. I applied back in March. Filled out the
L-O-N-G application online, printed it out. Last page said my application had...

I had to let the district know by this week. Reluctantly, I decided to stay home until the health threat is over, whether that is a semester or a whole school year. I will miss it, but because of our...

My district is planning to resume in-school classes for those who want to return, and continuing virtual school for those who choose. Subs needed to reply by yesterday to let them know if we are...

Thank you for all of the replies.

I see lots of you are as undecided as I am, and considering how and if to go back. This morning I read a draft of the recommendations that our state ed dept will send out to districts. It leaves a...

Who will return to subbing in the fall?

I am undecided myself. Mulling things over. Entering many different schools (11 elementary schools in my district) and many different classrooms exposes us to so many more people than a usual job...

The district where I work doesn't use an agency. They use an employee at the district office, and a computer program (Frontline). After every assignment we are asked to fill out a survey rating the...

Not I

I didn't START teaching until my youngest was in 3rd grade, so when I retired 30 years later, they were grown and flown!

Only when I look in the mirror!

I have energy, and take an interest in many things. Though I'm 70, I volunteer as an usher in the urban performing arts complex nearby, do church work, and substitute teach some each month. These...

Another retired teacher here!

I retired 2 years ago, in Dec. 2017. Since then I have subbed, but in a neighboring district. My home district wants subs to be available 3 days per week minimum. Too much for me!

The district...

That's Great!

You are a busy bee!
Keeping active despite a daunting medical diagnosis is so admirable! I think it will help maximize your body's fight against the disease. Bully for you!
Wishing you happiness...

(((hugs))) to you

I am glad that you see progress already. The brain is a marvelous organ! when one part is hurt, another part can take over the function. It may take some time, and training through PT or speech...

Love subbing

I sub quite a lot (7 - 10 days a month) at a neighboring district, not the one where I retired.
I just love being around the kids - I do only elementary, since that is 'in my wheelhouse'. I love...

Always have duty

Where I sub, all classroom teachers have lunch duty, and eat with their classes (but at a teacher table nearby so we can keep an eye on them.)
Similarly, all classroom teachers go out to recess with...

Not a bit!

That is the reason I am subbing, rather than taking a part time spot with set days and hours.

Our hometown district (where I taught before retirement) contracts with Kelly Services, and they...

Trip of a lifetime!

So happy that you get to go and do this.
I went to my HS 50th reunion 2 years ago, and it was terrific.
Have a ball with your family, your school friends, and your new PT buddy.

When we get that designation: "additional support teacher" or "additional for the classroom" in the district where I sub, it means an extra teacher (or usually an assistant) is regularly scheduled to...

For day-to-day subs here, no teaching certificate is necessary. For long-term (over 2 weeks) subs, certification is required. I think that strikes a good balance. The classroom teacher writes the...
