The secretaries do more than you think

I've often spoken with school secretaries and learned a lot about how things work. Generally, it's the secretaries who enter the scheduled absences (due to teacher's scheduled time off or if there are school wide meetings or trainings for teachers). They can also assign subs to those jobs or cancel subs from jobs. (I'm guessing they can and do also block subs. ) The secretaries also are keepers of the "preferred sub" list for that school and will make manual calls to find last minute subs. They are some of the operators behind AESOP, SmartFind, or whatever system is used. They are at the controls. So I have made it a point to demonstrate a good work ethic, be helpful, reliable, and be on good terms with the secretaries. They are the eyes and ears of the school and can help you or hurt you!
