When subbing as a Teachers Asst
Old 01-22-2010, 02:46 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #9

or Para, whatever the district calls it, I have the same "nervousness." Ironically, I subbed as a TA today, something I am usually hesitant to do because (a) the pay sucks, (b) usually the instructions are minimal, and (c) you are Always in the room with a regular teacher who may not like how you do things. I Hate feeling awkward around the kids, especially at the HS level since my confidence is half my classroom management style. I still try to be me, but it does make me feel self-conscience when the teacher is in the room. I second guess everything I do and look at his/her facial expressions to check for a reaction. See? I Would Never confess that to anyone else other than you all on PT!
