The thing about subbing is, I'm always walking in cold. I may know what the subject is ahead of time, but I don't know where they are in the curriculum or how the kids behave.
It doesn't help to walk into a situation where the teacher has been out for a couple months.
You'd think that the last sub in the position would leave a bit of a heads up for the next
At least the other teachers in the department were able to get me up to speed.
I was told to collect some assignment the previous sub gave. And then I was to give the kids a quiz.
Unfortunately, the previous sub told the kids the assignment was due next week. And the quiz was kind of a surprise. Although, not a big one.
It was a good thing that it was a minimum day. I don't think I could have handled a longer one.
