Ha!

Yep, those class sizes are ridiculous. So glad Iím in a small district. There have been glitches, but are always addressed.

Called many times.

I live on a blind hill, and I donít know how many times I have called 911 over the past 40 years. Called them last on March 3 when Russ had his brain bleed.

Dipping my toes back in

On April Fools Day. Only 1/2 day, though. High school English. It should be good. The teacher was fairly organized last time I subbed. Itís got to be better than sitting on the couch missing Russ and...

Our high school

...has had block scheduling since 1995. Done correctly, itís awesome. As a sub, itís been difficult only because of boredom. There are some teachers who create lessons where I can teach, but it just...

Love middle school

Good suggestions. I only sub middle/high school. When kids are talking or ignoring me, I stop, fold my arms, and silently wait. 20 years of middle school teaching. I stare at the offenders. It takes...

No cafeteria duty.

I sub middle and high school. They arenít extending the day. Now itís 8:00-1:00. Students get a snack. They also have sack lunches to take home if they want. Teachers meet remotely with small groups...

Lots of good advice

I only sub high school and middle school. During COVID, itís more like babysitting. The only problems I have had are when students I donít know try to get away with stuff. Generally, though, what...

Let me add

I have had teachers email me their plans and even PowerPoint presentations. Those are teachers I know well from subbing or from before retirement. That way, I am able to have one in case I canít get...

Covid and emailing

1. As a retired teacher, I would not respond to an anonymous email. Never. It might be a parent, a student, or just a person who wants to make trouble.
2. Go to the school or district website. It...

Welcome to the club!

Spent most of my career in 8th grade and two years in 7th grade. It was truly an adventure. And I wouldnít have had it any other way.

My experiences

At the beginning of the year, except for p.e., I basically was there to watch the kids in person. They would do assignments posted on the classroom, and I did nothing online. P.E. Was different. I...

What was I thinking? Havenít worked since before Thanksgiving, when schools went full remote. They are still full remote until the 19th. I can do Google meets and zoom. Hope the teacher has all set...

Didnít think of that.

I have my teacher certification, but itís for retired teachers. I have a really old teacher ID. Maybe the district will issue a letter saying that we are sub teachers. Good question to ask when...

I think you need a code.

I was emailed a code from my district office. I still have Jobulator, because it keeps me logged in. I used the frontline app once, and lost a job because of the few seconds it took to sign in.

Iím not sure Iíll get unemployment

But I will apply. Itís due to Covid, and I did qualify last spring until I began subbing this fall. I donít get a lot, but everything helps.
