I agree. I love subbing and working in different classrooms and meeting lots of kids. And sometimes on those impossible days you get a little positive reinforcement from just one of them: I worked 2 days in a rowdy 2nd grade recently. I worked hard to stay patient and positive. When I "set the students free" to work on math problems they were very noisy and I saw a little boy in the farthest seat sitting quietly crying. I went to sit next to him; he was having a tough time doing the "new" subtraction, which involved number lines and addition. After 5 minutes of helping him, in which I had to ignore the noise from the rest of the class, he was able to complete the page on his own. That was my gift for the day.
