In the district I sub for, teachers have either lunch or recess duty every day, so I know I’m going to be doing one or the other. There are 2 teachers on each duty, and there’s always a “regular”...

Zicam nasal swabs along with TheraZinc Echinacea lozenges has warded off several colds for me. Even if you don’t catch it in time this go-round, stock up on these two items so you’re ready next time....

I wouldn’t waste my time trying to speak with this individual. Why bother? Clearly he wasn’t able to be bothered when he wrote those fabulous lesson plans, nor could he make the effort to respond...

Sounds like your colleague is projecting. I agree with the other posters who said this year is your swan song as far as this event is concerned.

Sit on your hands and don’t make eye contact when...

DH had trigger thumb a few years ago, and the orthopedic doctor gave him a steroid shot in the hand. No more issues. Maybe you can have the same treatment.

That’s a real bonus. I love weeks like that, and they don’t come along very often, because if one of “my” teachers asks me to sub, I’m going to accept the job. Enjoy your perfect schedule!

I find it quite humorous that this sub was clueless as to why she’d been blocked from the elementary school.

Anyone can have an unexpected situation come up, but 7 last minute cancellations in...

If it were me, I’d have to do more digging, or pay a PI to do it for me. Like you, I had some bad experiences in the distant past which influence the way I think now.

You should never have been placed in that classroom. Way, way too much liability for a sub, especially one as young and inexperienced as you are. In no way is that statement meant as a dig.

Kid funny

The current sub job I’m doing is for four days. Last Friday was the first day, and at dismissal yesterday, one of the students (not in my class, but in the same grade level) said, “Mrs. Mooba, how...

So true, Smores18 and elepen.

Elepen, you conquered your fear and it seems as though you had a good day. Isn’t it nice to be able to be selective about which schools you sub for?

Our go-to is Tuff Stuff. I think DH gets it at Home Depot or AutoZone. The absolute best for getting any kind of stain out of upholstery. We’ve found it works best if you dampen the stained area,...

On bad subbing days, I do as Lakeside does, and have an adult beverage when I get home. When DH sees me go for a drink as soon as I put my purse down, he says, “Uh-oh” and makes himself scarce for...

Oh, I’m so glad you decided to take care of yourself first, and leave that awful job behind. You made an impression on these kids, and maybe you saw a bit of that today.

Before I retired, I felt guilty if I even took a sick day. Ridiculous, I know. I left the guilt behind once I started subbing.
