I probably would have written on it too. The ones I have seen are dry erase-compatible. We don't have many Smartboards, so I don't have much experience with them and wouldn't know some could be...

Three hour tests become six hour tests for kiddos with an accommodation of 100% extended time. Only the standard 10 minute break everyone else got. No food that whole time. That kid was a trooper!

Any AP Proctors?

I'm doing this for the first time this year. Has anyone else done it? So far it has gone well. Some of my tests are with only one or two students who get extended testing time.

I'm not exactly...

Not worth it

I wouldn't advise it. If I were the sub secretary, I would be ticked if you agreed to do the job and immediately canceled it. You would have wasted her time (twice) to game the system for your own...

Once I ended up stuffing some envelopes for the special ed dept. for a while. Eventually, they emailed teachers who were behind on writing up their case conferences. They told them I was on the way...

It might be different in different districts. In mine, I know jobs do not post as soon as they are entered. (I had a teacher who was calling off "sick," and she texted me right before she entered. I...

Set the example

First, let me say I have been there myself many times. I have definitely had some classes that were hugs PIAs and just wanted to rattle me for the fun of it. Only a couple of times have I had to call...

Each state is different, but you are actually ENTITLED to exactly zero breaks if you are over 18 (in my state). Of course, I don't know know of any workplace that doesn't give at least a 30 minute...

Do you have any idea what could be the source of animosity from the IAs? Other than having to carefully negotiate our roles to avoid stepping on toes, I have not experienced this attitude.

Yes, if I am roving that day, I take a restroom break as needed, and they have to wait for me to get to the next place. They know that's just how it is.

Why in the world did you not point that out and just ask when you should take lunch? As others noted, I'm sure that was just overlooked as they were working on covering everything. I've even had a...

I have had days like that, but not as an everyday thing. I like to use some of that time to get my steps in. I walk laps all around the building. The secretary has my cell number, so she can just...

Tomorrow is our last day, and we return Jan. 8. We are on a balanced calendar, so we have two weeks off between each quarter.

I sometimes sub in a room that has had a problem with the projector screen for years. Someone (a sub) got confused and wrote on it with a big black Sharpie one day. At least we didn't do THAT!

True Confessions

Anyone else ever do an "Oops!" at school?

Recently I was subbing at the high school. I spilled my drink (iced tea!), and it got on some graded AP exams in the desk. At least two stacks got wet...

I don't want the liability of handling a student's phone, and my schools are pretty lenient about them. At the high school level, if a student is on his phone I will check on his progress on the...

Secretaries are often hands-on

What are you talking about? You asked what role secretaries really have since assigning sub jobs is often an automated process. You got an answer describing how secretaries do actually have a hand in...

Maybe someone in your area will respond later, but I'll tell you how it is for me. My district uses AESOP (now called Frontline) to post available jobs. I have phone calls turned off, but the system...

Overreaction

This is too much drama over one rude, jeky student. I don't understand why he was sent back to class, and I'm really confused about coming back with fast food.

However, that is how it was...
