If I were looking for a big pay raise, promotion, or pat on the back from the boss, I'd never be happy as a sub. But I'm there because teaching is what I love to do, and I enjoy the kids I teach (most of them anyway ).
You'll find that almost every sub on this board feels the same way, but sometimes we just need a place to blow off steam. It's also that time of year where people are stressed and tired, and often literally sick and tired.

Granted, we do tend to joke about having a "real" job so we can take hour-long lunches and take off work without a care, b/c it will just be sitting on our desk waiting when we return. Your post reminds us that the grass isn't always greener on the other side of the fence, though we like to think so at times.

I'm glad you're enjoying sub life and have found your niche.
