Back in the Swing of Things

It has been a while since I posted. School has started and I now have kids that are a senior, a sophomore, and 8th grader. Next weekend we will be visiting 2 colleges in Pennsylvania with our boy.  Where did the time go?  We just put him on the bus for kindergarten!

 I am back subbing again.  Some days are great...and then some are not so great.

 This week I have worn all sorts of hats. 
  • On Monday I was math teacher at a middle school.  Since I am fairly good at math, I actually could teach it and help the kids who were stuck. 
  • On Tuesday,  became a 7th grade Spanish teacher at the same middle school.  Once again, I was very proficient in that so that I could actually help them rather than simply be a warm body in the classroom. The kids were surprised that I knew Spanish apparently. 
  • Wednesday I was in another middle school in another school district.  It was not a fun day since I seem to have quite a bit more trouble with discipline issues there.  I became an English teacher.  It was a miserable day...and a long one.  At the end of it, I had a head ache.  I had to send three boys to an in-school suspension room. 
  • Yesterday I was in an art room in this same district's High School. I had no trouble with discipline at all.  The kids were wonderful!
  • Today I was a librarian at another middle school in an entirely different county than the other two districts.  Actually it was the same district as this school.  I felt entirely at home.  I team taught with a home and careers teacher.

That's great! All week subbing- good for you! And talk about making the rounds. Something different each day. :)

I will say that it is a new job every day.

The life of a sub is never boring, is it? Well, except for those long, boring days when the teacher doesn't really expect you to do anything besides be a warm body in the room.
I've subbed in a Spanish classroom many times, but unfortunately do not speak it.

Wow, you've been busy!

Joeks, That is why I was careful to say it is new everyday...but didn't claim that it is never boring. Sometimes I have been so bored that I feel like screaming!
