"Preferred subs..."

NJTeacher... I chuckled at the term "preferred sub" because it is a double-edged sword. We're a small district/school and things are fairly informal and unstructured... It's no secret that I am not subbing for the income so those who are often get called first, as do a number of retired teachers. I'm okay with that, but I seem to be a preferred sub when the assignment is a tough one. I get the calls asking how quickly I can be there... or the field trip assignments and half days no one else wants. I've recently had two assignments where I was first choice because they were, um, assignments that required delicate handling or extra hours. I consider it a compliment but have occasionally said to the coordinator, "Please... can't you give me an easy one?!"
