Walking in other's shoes

I retired last year from classroom teaching, but am now doing a long term subbing position for our reading specialist. I am thoroughly enjoying so many aspects of it. Groups of no more than 3, having some " challenging" students for no more than 40 minutes at a time , the variety of ages and types of interventions, etc. What has been eye opening is the rigor of the workload. There is very little down time because it involves picking up and returning those kids and then fully using every second of your time with them. When I was in the classroom ( second grade) I could, on occasion, just have the kids work on something and steal a few minutes here or there to find materials for the next lesson, jot a note or email to a parent, etc. I didn't do it often, but could if I needed to. There isn't time for that now! And, did I mention the progress monitoring and data collection?! I think the perception is that our interventionists have it so easy. Not true at all and I want to thank all of you for your hard work. I have already let our interventionists know that walking in their shoes for these past two months has been an eye opener! I have also passed this on to our staff and administrators. So with Teacher Appreciation Day coming up-- Thank You
