In Michigan we just had to get fingerprints/background check, complete some online training (for pathogens, abuse, etc) and sign a contract. No immunizations. Some districts in particular require TB...

Aw I hope you start feeling better :( I really hate having a rough day and then not wanting to sub the next day or getting sick and not being able to - it makes it so hard to get all 5 days in.

I'm a SPED aide this week - it's definitely different but can be a lot easier once you get to know the kids (usually) :)

I've seen teachers that allow the students to get up, but I definitely do not as a substitute. It's too hard to keep track of everyone moving around, getting them to not talk, teaching, helping with...
