Guilty sub here

I took myself off the schedule this week as I'm fighting a cold. There were only two days anyway. Told the secretary to let me know if they were desperate. Sure enough, Monday she messaged me with a...

Happened to me once. Called the IT guru, and he retrieved them somehow. I think it had already gone to the next quarter before I could enter final grades. I don't remember, but I was SO relieved!

Wow!

I am only a sub, but my district worked with me so I could leave before the end of the school days this fall. Other teachers covered the last 15 minutes of classes for me so that I could get to...

I'm a retired teacher

The last class I taught as 7th graders are seniors now. I've been subbing since I retired. It is so awesome to see students I subbed for as 6th graders grow up to be awesome high school juniors. My...

Just counted the days I've subbed

As a retired teacher, I am limited to 120 days. By the end of December, I will have at least 55 days. It would be more, but I had to block out several days for my cancer treatments and doctor appts....

Nearly 5 years

I sub in my old middle school and at the high school. I could work every day. I've jokingly told teachers that they are going to have to put out bids for my time. In Illinois, they are so short of...

Just today

Took the job at a wedding last night. The weather prediction was for up to 6" of snow. But it was at the high school about 5 miles from me (mostly country driving. So....30 mph, but I made it to...

That's not PBIS

PBIS is about creating community, and it's not easy. Our school has quarterly parties where the entire school reaches a certain percentage, usually 85% of whatever is being concentrated on. Let's say...

Not a math person, so....

1. Photo math
2. High school only. They can email the teacher.
3. Let students pair up.
R. Students demonstrate solving on the board.

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...

Cuisenart

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

Sublime

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...
