I don’t know about you… but I would rather come to school sick than have a sub! It just seems that so many times it becomes more of a hassle. Now, don’t get me wrong, there are some WONDERFUL subs out there! But I always seem to get the
good ones. I was out yesterday, feeling very under the weather, and I left DETAILED… I mean DETAILED plans! Come on people, ya’ll know how CRAZY we teachers get with our plans when we’re gone.. wanting things just so. Now usually, I just wouldn’t have the sub do anything new. But with Christmas break coming up, we just HAD to get some things finished. I mean I put instructions in three different formats, even in a Smartboard lesson for the sub to pull up to remind him! What do ya know.. I get here today and my kiddos inform me of all the things he didn’t do. I mean, blatantly ignored my instructions…… REALLY?!?! After a few “Mrs. Cap, he didn’t tell us to do that either!” I was ready to go absolutely nutso, wacko, scream and pull my hair out crazy! I took a deep “belly breath” and just retaught it all… ugh! Happy Friday, right?! 🙂
Thank you all for listening! For being such wonderful listeners, I am linking up with Freebie Friday to share with you some things I’m using in my classroom!
