My district.

The teacher canít put a sub in, but the secretary can. Usually, the teacher contacts me and then contacts the secretary. Occasionally, the secretary will contact me for confirmation. I find it easier...

So much truth

When I taught full time, the hardest thing to do was not take things personally and to not lose control of myself. Now that I am subbing, it is easier, because I can avoid teachers and classrooms...

My kids loved gliders

They are inexpensive and most come with footstools. I loved using them when I babysat the babies. I had a regular rocking chair (wooden) that I used with my boys. It was okay, but I sure loved the...
