“Is there a point to rejecting jobs...”

Earlier this week a job came up for Boys PE at a middle school. I ignored it, and apparently so did everyone else, as it stayed on AESOP all afternoon and into the evening. I rejected it right before...

are great suggestions. Just a warning: If you are driving, and plan in visiting Muir Woods, make sure you go online and reserve a parking spot. My husband and I visited this summer, and those who had...

As a sub...

I can tell you that sometimes I will pass by a teacher in a hallway, and casually say, “Looking forward to being in for you next week.” There will be a blank look on the teacher’s face. Turns out the...

Welcome back!

School doesn’t start back until the middle of next week here. I’ve got a few jobs booked for the middle of September. Come December I’ll be starting my 22nd year of subbing.

It all depends...

on how the district has it set up. My district allows teachers to designate up to five subs as their “preferred subs.” I will get an email that lets me know a teacher has a job available for me as a...

I am.

The teachers’ union negotiated a raise for the new contract, and subs always get a raise when the teachers do. Not earth shattering, but I’ll take it!

I bought a bottle of scented detergent...

and then found it was too strong. I mixed it 50/50 with a bottle of unscented detergent in an old bottle, and it was just right for us.

my family frequented a pizza parlor that included anchovies if you ordered a combination pizza. They always asked, “Do you want us to include the anchovies?” Since they were free, we would ask them...

Plus (and I only sub for elementary) a good idea is to grab a sheet of paper and a pencil, walk around the classroom, and to sketch out a seating chart. I use it to keep track of names, and also mark...

will celebrate our 41st this year. We haven’t purchased cards for each other in decades. We grab construction paper and make them for each other, usually adding a private joke or comment to the...

there is a Spindrift knock-off series that we like. Our favorite is Blood Orange and Orange Juice Seltzer Water. 15 calories, and no weird aftertaste.

Sub here.

I certainly understand your frustration. A last minute cancellation does mess things up for you. Previous posters are correct that most likely the sub got sick in the middle of the night. I know that...

Our favorite show!

We watched this past week’s episode tonight, and we both laughed and cried. Yes, it’s definitely a show that Star Trek fans would love.

in your part of California, but when I first decided to sub, I took my CBEST score and fingerprint results to the district where I wanted to apply. I got the paperwork from them, and everything was...

but those students who miss the cutoff in our state can sign up for transitional kindergarten. I just subbed in one of those classes today.

An Instant Pot IS a pressure cooker

It is just a brand name of an electric pressure cooker. I have another brand that works similarly to an Instant Pot, but when I compared mine to an IP online, the articles mentioned slight...

any name you pick should have at least two syllables, preferably with the first syllable accented if it is only two syllables. To me, it has more cadence with the middle name Elijah.

I see two different kind of jobs here.

When I see the word "Floater" in the job description for a job in my district, this means that I will be floating from classroom to classroom for that day, while teachers pop out for short meetings...

I don’t know which state you’re in...

but here in California, you can go online to check things out at the CA Contractors Board. You type in the name, or the license number, and things come up.
