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).

I used to bring peanut butter sandwiches for lunch...

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.

I have nothing against the two stores you mentioned, and it might turn out that one of them will give you the best deal. At the same time, it's worth checking out smaller independent appliance...

I agree with all of the reasons given so far.

Here's another one: When a job is posted several weeks or months in advance, it's often because the teacher has a workshop scheduled. I've accepted...

When I first read this a couple days ago, I thought you were being making a major mistake. Now that I've had a chance to think about it, my thoughts have changed.

We received small raises about a year ago and now make about $100/day.

I've heard "washroom" in cities along Highway 401 in Ontario, but perhaps it isn't used everywhere in Canada.

Great responses!

Crazy4catz, are you in Canada? When we're in Canadian restaurants, wash room is the term we hear, but it doesn't seem to be a common expression in the U.S.
