My main fear was that they would destroy an instrument.

I have subbed for band a few times. There is nothing you can do but call the principal.

If this is middle school or high school, I would just let them do what they want to do. We had a HS sophomore who got mad at life and murdered 2, shot 6 total, just because the little snow-flake was...

My main problem with the Praxis 1 math is that I do not even recognize the problems or how to do them because they were not taught to me when I was going to school.

I am a class 2 sub and have an M.Ed.


If you can afford it, possibly get the Wong and Wong classroom management book. Also, look into how to follow a teacher's lesson plan. They do use some...

If that is the case, you should go for the higher paid job. Living in an area where there is a glut of qualified workers is really a way not to get hired, and not to find a job. Competition is one...

I am not sure why you would join Teach for America if you are in an area where there is a teacher shortage, and would likely be able to get a job without them where you live.

My bet is that after enough subs defect, they will raise the pay. That's basically what happened where I am. They simply could not get enough people who wanted to be subs. They raised the pay, and...

The thing is: A Masters is often only a few credit hours more than the Alt Certification. In my college (Wayland Baptist in Texas) I got the Master's and actually the difference between a "Master's"...

I am not sure how difficult it is to transfer the skill set. One thing they do (or should know) is that you are trainable, can produce, are competent with technology, do not mind presenting in front...

Krylon is what "professional" artists use. It is a fixative used on most art like pastels and things that are dusty and/or chalky.

I do not think you should be thinking in terms of "entry level." But you might consider some extra training in something like "corporate training," or "instructional design."

Perhaps go to the...

Maybe he is being abused or molested at home? Has anything changed with his home life? Is he homeless? Is his family moving around? Is he running with a gang or getting in trouble with drugs/crime?
