Does Aesop ever list the wrong subject for the teacher?

Man, I took what I thought was going to be an art job at the alternative high school. Art is always laid back. It was biology instead and itís been nuts. Only three more days. Anyway, does this happen to you guys ever? I canít think of a time itís been so blatantly wrong.

I don't use Aesop, but I can still understand. Mine had an "English" class that turned out to be "English for English Learners" and I didn't find out the class barely spoke English until I got there for the day. I've had plenty of moments like those where it's very -unclear-, but never had a time where it got the entire subject matter wrong. That's pretty bad. Sorry they gave you the ol' switcheroo.


What I've noticed a ton is people who leave their names out of the system, so it just says INVALID where their name should be. I try to avoid those, because every time I've grabbed one, I got the sense that the teacher hid their name on purpose, because their classes were generally terrible and it made me wonder if maybe they'd been blacklisted by enough people to warrant actually hiding their name so they would get people accepting their jobs again. Just speculation though. Dunno.

A lot of the time on Aesop it wouldn't give me the subject. I printed out the teacher/subject list that's on the school's website. I also took a picture of the master schedule that most teachers have on the wall behind their desk. It even has prep periods and all subjects, with room numbers and extensions.

Aesop only displays what the district or teachers put into it.

What Iíve noticed in my area is that any kind of special ed assignment is called ďspecial educationĒ and not learning support, life skills, autistic support, emotional support, or multiple disabilities. I do well with everything except emotional support.

My district only lists the school, teacher name, and whether it's high school, middle school, elementary, or exceptional children instructor.

Wrong grade level

Something similar to that. I only sub elementary lower grades. I signed up for kinder only to discover when I arrived that it was actually 4th grade. That kind of thing has happened a few times.

I'm told that sometimes the system may not be updated to reflect changes in the teacher's class grade level.

Frequently, if it just says "teacher," it turns out to be special ed, etc.

SubMan's response is also my experience. I see a few teachers who have the wrong subject, but it is because they have changed subject areas and didn't update Aesop. I see one example where the teacher was a shop teacher and now teachers social studies. Another was a middle school reading support teacher who is now a 12th grade English teacher. I occasionally find some others who only have "teacher" listed. They are sometimes long-term subs, but I would still like to know the subject.

YES. I took an assignment that said English. When I got there, I found this teacher now teaches math. It was 5th grade Math, so I could handle it until the last class, who didn't want to do any work.
