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...

First day back

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...

Ima Teacher

I had a 7/7 and took two nighttime Aleves an hour later. Not as impressive as your deed, though.

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 saw those.

I usually set mine in the sink if itís clean. Otherwise, I have a plastic cutting board that doubles as a lid holder.

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.

This sounds like nothing Iíve experienced as a sub with in-person Learnerís. Yes, students are on screens. But teachers, if the weather is good, have been teaching outside. One teacher uses an alcove...

Sub training.

If you donít have an education degree, in Illinois you must have training. You must be 18 with at least a high school diploma. I believe the training is 7 hours, and you must pass a test afterwards....

Welp...unemployment next

I have two sub jobs at the beginning of the week. Then....unemployment until at least Jan. 19. Sigh.... Going all remote, which I know is necessary, but still is a pain.

When your district is full remote get sucked into harvest. Iíve been helping unload corn wagons into an auger that fills semis. Luckily itís been sunny and in the seventies in N. IL. this week. I have work next week, but...

8th grade boys

Brains go south. However, about sophomore year, it seems as if something clicks, and they care about others. Iíve subbed in a civics class several times, and the conversations are very enlightening.

Full remote one more week at least

Rural district. Bus driver tested positive. Now the entire transportation department is quarantined. And the students on that bus. So, I get a week off. Again.

Yes, but mine ends at the end of October.

I have been lucky enough to sub a couple of days a week. I probably wonít even be eligible by the end of October, unless my district shuts down and goes full remote.

Not allowed

At least not at the elementary schools. Too much pulling down and chewing on them. I havenít seen any students at the middle/high school wearing them.
