It's where I shine. Maybe because I have the same attitudes as the students? Anyway, the ELA and social studies teachers leave me actual work (most of the time) as they know those subjects are my forte. Math teachers know to leave review work or assessments. Science teachers usually leave independent work or work that they know I'm comfortable with. I don't sub for the littles for fear of making them cry with my sarcasm/wit.
Middle school students need you to show them respect. If they aren't showing it to me, I stop and wait. Generally, I don't raise my voice to them, because that just feeds the fire. Granted, I spent 20 years with those creatures, so know how to pick my battles.
