Very interesting comments.

Amiga13, thanks for your response. It's good to hear that a Medicare Advantage plan worked for you and your husband.

I work for an outsource company, but as an employee. It isn't great, but they do take care of Social Security and state and federal taxes.

I don't think I'd like to be with a company like Swing,...

I remember a girl I had from my days as a regular teacher. She had a positive attitude and was a great student, and at the time, I was sure she had a great future. About 15 years later, her name...

This is one of those situations when you're darned if you do and darned if you don't.

In the schools where I sub, I've never heard anything one way or the other about teachers using student...

I don't know the answer to your question, but similar questions frequently appear on this board. The whole thing is very unfair.

As a sub, I know it's frustrating for teachers when subs back out of scheduled jobs, and it isn't something I do often. I do get sick from time to time, but when it happens, I try to be considerate...

Mommysubs, you did a good job handling a bad situation. Mooba, you're so right when you said that life will not be kind to these kids. Some will eventually get the message, but I suspect that many...

I can't provide any advice about medications, but I think it's safe to say that many teachers have symptoms somewhat similar to yours. Some manage to hide everything better than others. We all know...

When I started teaching back in the late 70s, I'd wear a dress shirt, tie, and dress shoes just about every day. Things have become a bit more casual, but I still try to look professional. That means...

I agree with Haley23. Figure out how many calories you should be consuming daily, and take it from there. It's worked for me as I've watched the pounds come off.

Teach 5 also offers good advice...

It's good to hear you were put back on Aesop, but it sounds like this sub coordinator and school district are major micromanagers.

As far as I know, it is possible to see when a sub logs into...

It's hard to know why you were taken off Aesop. Perhaps someone said something negative, or perhaps they were angry that you rejected those jobs. If you're concerned about this in the future, don't...

When Aesop calls and I'm not interested in the job, I end the call without actually rejecting it. I've done it this way for years, and it's never been held against me.

Also a big peanut butter fan. I've always preferred natural peanut butter, and get it from Trader Joe's (usually smooth, but I like crunchy too).

Good for you!

It reminds me of something I read years ago in Barb Pronin's A Handbook for Hassle-Free Subbing. I'm not sure if Barb personally did it, but she shared the story of a sub who once...

SubMan, you're right. Students like this will lie and do everything they can to tip the balance of power to their side. They'll look for anything they can use against you.

Please keep us posted.
