I was signed up to work Valentine's Day but had to cancel. My dad was put in the hospital the weekend before and I stayed each day with him, with my sisters alternating nights. He was released today,...

Question about expectations

I've been reading some back messages on this board and really enjoying it. They've given me lots of good ideas which I've been keeping in a file on my desktop.

One thing posters have mentioned is...

I'd probably handle it by letting the small things slide. In other words, they're not going to be sitting quietly when it's a party. But if that tough kid, or any others, get out of hand...stealing...

I feel that we all have certain grade levels that we're comfortable with and some that we're not. For instance, I'll beg on a street corner before I go back to high school.

Just wanted to share...

and let the sub decide what she'd be comfortable with?

For me, if the kids know that everybody else in their grade level is doing fun stuff...it'd be really hard to get them to do classwork so I'd...

I'd do the same

Sounds like someone who's so insecure in his job, he has to bring someone else down too.

My district has just started using Aesop this school year and I haven't seen any reviews as of yet.

Happens to me all the time.

This is my 9th year to sub. I sub mostly at one elementary school. I decided a while back that I'm not going to turn down a job based on what the job is. I can have great days in a room that I...

I agree with the previous posters. If the para wanted to tell on you, she'd have headed straight down to the office. And she was probably enjoying having some control over the class.

This reminds me of when I subbed at the alternative high school. The classes are small there and this period I had five kids in the room. One boy came up and asked to go to the restroom. You have to...

I see what you mean about the student now. I guess I was comparing it to a time where a student came up and told me that the teacher said they were supposed to do another paper and that I must have...

I also sub mostly at one school. I've messed up countless times and am still called back. Whether you work for that teacher again or not is personal preference. I don't turn down jobs because of...

Yep

I sub mostly at one elementary school so I've known most of the kids since pre-k. But there's always new kids and I hate to know everybody's name but just a few. Then you have the names that sound...

Me Me Me!

I love subbing! I feel like I'm really good at it and I love that every day something happens that you couldn't have predicted. I love the variety too. If something's aggravating about a classroom I...

I think that it depends on the school. I've learned at the school where I sub that it's best to just accept that it's going to be that kind of day. Once, in the morning, I'll politely say something...

Thanks, Sub14! That's a good point. I only sub at a couple of schools and there's a staff list at the district's website for each school. Of course, that staff list doesn't get updated like it...

I don't get completely dressed and ready to go without a job lined up. I'm no fashion diva, it takes me about 10 minutes to get ready. But I do get up and get a shower first thing. And I *try* to...
