Today I'm a floater sub at a "primary center."

In the morning I'm covering for a teacher who is out proctoring the PSSA (state achievement test) for those students who missed some or all of it last week. In the afternoon I'm in for a teacher who has an appointment.

I arrive at the cafe to collect the class when the cafe aide comes over to me and says "this class is out of control!" I say "Oh?" (because they are standing there waiting to be picked up and I wasn't in the cafe to witness anything). Cafe aide says "yes, and something needs to be done about it because nothing has been done about it!" I say "okay" and take the class back to the classroom.

Before starting math I asked the students how was lunch and if anything unusual happened. Students indicated that nothing unusual happened. I let the teacher know about the cafe aide in case there was something the students didn't want to share with me.

Isn't that frustrating? I got yelled at yesterday, too and I am the teacher. I was meeting my class to give them a few minutes of extra recess and the duty person starts in on how "some of the boys in my class" don't know how to use a slide. Well, what do you want me to do about it? I am not on duty. Make them sit out for the WHOLE recess if you have to, but I really don't want to hear about it. Write behavior slips on them. You didn't even give me names. Am I supposed to "yell" at my whole class about it?

It's happened to me a few times. Some yard duty and cafeteria staff tend to yell at everyone indiscriminately. Seems they only know one mode of communication. I generally just ignore them and go about my business.

being asked to handle a behavior issue that happened when you weren't there is super frustrating! It would be as if you took the class to lunch and announced to the lunch ladies, "Jack wouldn't stay in his seat in math class. I expect you to do something about it." Ridiculous, right?

That being said, I am a wee bit jealous of those of you who drop your children off for lunch and/or recess, and have others who supervise them there. Here in SC there is no such thing as duty free lunch.

I’ve had the same experience, and it’s equally annoying when students come to me to complain about something that happened during specials, lunch, or recess when I wasn’t on duty.

Mrs. Mooba: “Did you tell (fill in teacher’s name that was on duty at the time)?


Student (looks sheepish): “Nooo.”


Mrs. Mooba: “Next time, tell the teacher on duty at the time something happens. I cannot help you since I wasn’t there at the time.”


What I want to say is, “I feel for you, but I just can’t reach you.”

I'm sub teaching in CA, and although I don't have to stay for lunch duty, I often have to escort the younger ones through the lunch line as well as do at least one recess duty and sometimes parking lot duty after school! i honestly don't mind the duties, but I really resent being yelled at and bossed around by rude yard/cafeteria staff! Experiences like that discourage me from returning to a school.

In 21 years, I have been yelled at once, and this was by an aide in an ARSD class.

I actually got called to the district office to speak to the superintendent about this day.

This aide developed an immediate dislike for me, which was evident since she had not said a word to me all day.

Then in the afternoon, we were doing a Presidents Day flip book assignment that was going well, until near the end.

The only girl in the class said, " I want/ need a break". I told her we are almost done, as we would have been in under five minutes.

This aide then breaks her day long long silence and yells " AH GIVE HER A BREAK!

I e- mailed the teacher to inquire about what I did that was troubling.

She said I did not follow the aides suggestions, which makes no sense since they offered no suggestions and one said nothing until she yelled.

She also complained about my sub report.

I discussed how each student did in the report. She retorted " I did not ask you how each student did, I asked how how the day went."

In my opinion. giving a summary of how each student did is more detail than a general report but the teacher disagreed.

Of course the teacher never met me, she just assumed i was awful since her aides said so.

The Principal even had a meeting about me, with the teacher I suppose.

They decided they would invite me back for a 2nd chance since I was a nice guy.

I told the superintendent, " No thanks".
