A couple of years ago I could only see aide jobs for the first month of school. I would get phone calls from someone begging me to help, when I had never seen that job posted. A secretary finally...

We started August 1. Four days into the year, a teacher had to have major semi-emergency surgery. She is still in the hospital. I have subbed there every day since. However, next week and going...

In my district, it sends an email to each of the preferred subs notifying that there is a job posted. However, it hits the job board (and the sub apps) immediately. So everyone with Jobulator or...

Change of pace

When I left my previous field, I just needed a break. I didn't set out to stay working as a sub (8?) years ago, but it has worked pretty well for me. I also do some work-from-home projects, so the...

A nearby district really takes care of their certified subs! They are advertising $3.11 more per day than for uncertified subs!

Good point. I am not cerified either. Is pay higher in the states that require that subs be cerified teachers? Anyone know?

$5

Sub pay went from $70 to $75 per day a couple years ago. They had offered some tiered bonuses after so many days of subbing for the year, but they took that away with that increase. So overall, my...

Last week

We have a balanced calendar, so our students started August 1. There are a few unfilled positions and plenty of jobs for anyone wanting one.

I agree with those pointing out that I am stuck doing this. I am going to try to compete it during lunches or possibly preps since they are allowing one month to complete. It is the principle of the...

Unpaid required training

I just learned that I am expected to complete online training modules. This is the first year subs have had this requirement, and it's about four hours of material. My understanding has always been...

I probably would have written on it too. The ones I have seen are dry erase-compatible. We don't have many Smartboards, so I don't have much experience with them and wouldn't know some could be...

Three hour tests become six hour tests for kiddos with an accommodation of 100% extended time. Only the standard 10 minute break everyone else got. No food that whole time. That kid was a trooper!

Any AP Proctors?

I'm doing this for the first time this year. Has anyone else done it? So far it has gone well. Some of my tests are with only one or two students who get extended testing time.

Not worth it

I wouldn't advise it. If I were the sub secretary, I would be ticked if you agreed to do the job and immediately canceled it. You would have wasted her time (twice) to game the system for your own...

It might be different in different districts. In mine, I know jobs do not post as soon as they are entered. (I had a teacher who was calling off "sick," and she texted me right before she entered. I...

First, let me say I have been there myself many times. I have definitely had some classes that were hugs PIAs and just wanted to rattle me for the fun of it. Only a couple of times have I had to call...

Each state is different, but you are actually ENTITLED to exactly zero breaks if you are over 18 (in my state). Of course, I don't know know of any workplace that doesn't give at least a 30 minute...

Yes, if I am roving that day, I take a restroom break as needed, and they have to wait for me to get to the next place. They know that's just how it is.

Why in the world did you not point that out and just ask when you should take lunch? As others noted, I'm sure that was just overlooked as they were working on covering everything. I've even had a...
