i don't feel safe at all. i saw too much in my district to believe going back with the addition of covid can be safe, particularly for a sub.

i am weirdly grateful that my long-term health took a...

i don't know how it works in your district, but i always forget that there is a period of time in august where i can't access stuff, something about rolling everything over to the new year. you may...

your coordinator sounds like mine, even before covid. i haven't bothered to ask a thing since all this started except one question about pay and one question about my inability log in to smartfind,...

i avoid block classes in my district because, if it's a terrible class, you're trapped with them that much longer. if they go off the rails, they build up to much worse behavior over that longer...

yeah, they finally posted an updated pay schedule in our district. same pay for day-to-day jobs as last year. i'm not positive because i avoid long-term jobs, but it looked like they LOWERED the...

probably not

sometimes i think about it, because i really don't want to be any more broke. lost snap, just looked at student loans today (70k and rising), so this is a really hard choice. i keep coming back to...

we haven't heard a word suggesting we will be used for distance learning, only in-person stuff. i'm not saying it's impossible, but i won't count on that being an option in my district.

without even being pulled, i think playing covid cop in class is what this year looks like for us. teaching was hard enough for a sub in my district; if i go back, i expect horrific behavior and i...

i like your thinking. i think maybe one phone call, and after that you don't come back for a week or something (for older kids). you wanna come to school? play by the rules.

at this point, kids...

still not sure

i honestly don't know. i just saw plans that my district is considering, which look like a hybrid model. the thing is, a lot of students at my main school are not super well-behaved on the best of...

i'm curious to know whether your experience as a sub led you to this conclusion or if you already felt that way?

if it comes that, i will quit. the notes i take help me to remember what i need to do, what i need to tell teachers and admin, and they cover my rear if anyone questions anything after the fact.
