more teachers were like the one I subbed for for the last two days! Many of teachers were at planning meetings in the school this week. This is a school that I don't sub in very often. All I kept hearing was how this particular teacher is NEVER out of her classroom for a full day,let alone two. She left plenty of (easy for a sub to follow) work for her class.There were almost no parts of the day when they had time to slack off.

After dismissal today, she came in the room and thanked me for subbing for her class. She said that every time she walked past, her class was quietly working. She said that she hates being away from her class even for one period because she usually finds a madhouse upon her return. She then thanked me again because she said that she felt comfortable during the last two days because she was confident that they were in good hands and that she feels that way any time I am in her room.

I practically floated out of there today!

I love hearing things like that! As a sub it's nice to feel appreciated. Way to go for being a great sub and making a teacher feel comfortable.

How awesome! Don't you wish that some teacher's lesson plans were templates other's could/would use? And nothing feels as good as a great day subbing topped with a compliment.

Congrats on a job well done. It's so nice to be told when we've done a good job.

Doesn't happen that often, but it's really good to hear. We usually have one of those thankless jobs.

I appreciate this teacher right back. Any time I've been in her room, she leaves challenging work for her students that keeps them busy and engaged. She doesn't have an "easy" class behavior wise but I would sub for her again in a heartbeat.
