Just be yourself

When I read all these posts, I had to smile at Gottaread's comments on "Who are you today?" I get that a lot as a sub. I, too, feel like telling them my real name instead of the teacher's name whom I am subbing for.
On Friday, I was in a K room, when the teacher popped in and out. While it is disconcerting I just kept teaching as best I could. You can only be yourself. Also, I teach it my way- as I am sure every teacher does. So many different teaching styles out there. As a sub, you have to use what you know works for that class at that moment. You have to be flexible.
So, remember, just be yourself and don't worry about what others will think.
