TLV

I'm actually enjoying subbing. I'm not working as much as I want just yet, but it's nice to just go into the class, teach, and then leave with no extra work. You made me feel better about the whole subbing thing, so thanks.

    I'm glad! Have you been mostly getting elementary? Yeah it is very nice to be able to leave everything at school with no planning or grading.  I guess I just get bored with it after a while because of the no planning.  I didn't work today even though they called me (albeit not until 9:30) because I have a cold and by that time was settled into the couch.  I've only worked 2 days so far, but not working today was totally my fault :P I thought it would have picked up more by now, but oh well.I really shouldn't complain about it as much as I do, I just get fed up with the times when there's 7 days in a row of nothing but giving the students worksheets.  I love it when they actually give me a lesson to teach!

    I've actually taught more middle school than elementary. I've only subbed 3 days so far this year, last week was my first week, but I'm teaching PE tomorrow.

    That could be fun.  My mom is a PE teacher, but by the end of the year last year I told them not to call me anymore for PE classes, I had too many bad experiences, but I really doubt you'd have the same issues in elementary or middle school.

    In CA they require a BA and most districts require a full credential. I taught last year, this year I'm subbing. DH is teaching drama + journalism + English in HS.

    Our district still only requires 60 hours of college credit. No degrees or certificates necessary.  I think if they upped their standards  it would greatly impact in a positive way the students' education.  I read somewhere that students spend an average of 187 days (more than 1 school year) with substitutes between k-12.  I'm not saying I'm the best sub, but I'm certainly better than half of the college students that need beer money doing the same thing.

    Sarah- how is Tim liking the drama? Wasn't that the area he hadn't taught before?

    He's loving drama. He was scared because he has Drama 1, 2, and 3. He also has about 8 special ed kids in drama 1 and 2 + their adult para professionals watching him, but his special ed kids try really hard and really enjoy it. His drama 3 puts on the production. They want to do a horror play and release it on Halloween, but Tim's not so sure it would go well. Horror would be hard to pull off.

    Working in an office can't hurt since you get to know administrators, but it doesn't count as educational experience. Neither does subbing, which is why when I try to renew my certificate in 3 years I don't know wtf I'm going to do, since it only lasts 4 years and you need 4 years of teaching experience. FML.

    Bella, Classified positions like secretary work is not the same as certificated work like teaching. A classified position would help you to get to know people, but it doesn't count as certificated/teaching experience.
