Ugh.


Personally I'd email her and just ask her not to treat the Homeroom page like Facebook.

Problem is I keep getting the message that "all lines are busy" and...

Exactly. What are we supposed to do to make money during this virus lockdown?

I'm out of work for five weeks with no pay.

Subs get screwed every time.

Schools in my area closed until mid-April.

If things escalate further (seriously hope not) maybe even later.

The government should pay us subs right now. We're technically laid off.

This is madness.

I was requested by a few districts, but after I saw that even the NBA was calling it quits I ignored the voicemails.

Maybe I'll be back to work by mid-April unless things get...

Good advice.

I've accepted four long term assignments in my subbing career.

All of them were ridiculous. Very little support from admin or other teachers.

Not worth the disrespect.

Oh, the cell phone nonsense is BS.


If schools actually cared they'd make it a rule that cell phone use wasn't allowed in any classroom.

As an introvert, I enjoy being alone most of the time. I eagerly avoid the staff room any time I can.

But subbing can be lonely in the same way a big city can: A lot of people around you at all...

"mystified as to why she hasnít been let go. Sheís rude and unprofessional."


Sadly, we now live in an era where that kind of behavior is not only tolerated, but rewarded.

I don't see what's wrong with using sarcasm when used in a humorous, light hearted manner.

Most of my favorite teachers in the 90's used sarcasm (not in a mean-spirited way) and we thought they...

Same here regarding brownie points.

I used to take jobs when my sub coordinator or schools called and asked me to.

Eventually I learned you don't get anything back in return except for spam...

Lol, I love when they feed us that nonsense.

We're "just like real teachers" without opinions, health care, or rights.

Yeah, if you're banned, their jobs won't show up.

The school site tab just displays what districts you signed up for as a substitute.

On one hand, you don't have to deal with papers being lost or running out of packets. And students can't blame us for work not being completed.

You probably guessed correctly.


My wife used to work in retail, and they did exactly that to her.



Health insurance and student loans are the biggest scams of all time.

@subman

I wonder what they would do if a sub cancelled on them 5 minutes before they were to report?

Unless it was an emergency, they'd most certainly ban us for life.
