I don't like those sub days when the teacher is testing. Yes, I am a little more nervous having the teacher popping in and out. But it isn't that as much as almost feeling like neither of us wants to step on the others toes. Reminds me when a child is with both parents and grandparents, sometimes they get away with more. I have become more comfortable over the years with this situation, but it does take getting used to.

The problem with figuring out "normal behavior" is that it is different for EVERY class. Not just they dynamics in the class, but the teacher's style makes a difference. I have been in classrooms where the teacher doesn't give them an inch to be creative at all, and then I have been in a classroom that is the opposite, where they have the freedom to do just about anything.
