Friday Surprise


Thursday was the last day of school. I made plans for Friday. Afternoon plans.

I woke up early. Lazed in bed with the intention of going back to sleep. Picked up my phone. Checked my email, Facebook, Twitter, and played a couple rounds of Pyramid Solitaire Saga. That's when my phone rang.

The caller ID popped up. It was the continuation high school.

Huh?

They let out two days before the traditional high schools. Why would they be calling me?

Turned out that they were already on their summer school, and they needed a sub to cover a couple different teachers who had to step for a couple hours each for personal reasons. Could I come in to sub?

Uh, YEAH!

I'm on the summer school sub list. But I never (okay, not never, but rarely) get called. Unfortunately, I have no good stories to share. Those kiddos were working diligently and silently.

So, now I'm officially on summer and summer schedule. Next week I'll share my year end stats.

And if you haven't seen my Monday post, please make sure to check it out. I'd appreciate any help you can give.

  1. That does sound like a surprise. I'd imagine most teachers stick around during summer school. There's so much content boiled down to a few weeks that it'd probably be hard to leave the kids with a sub.

  2. Bummer for summer school, but hopefully you still get a lot of days off to enjoy.

    1. Yeah, you guys start EARLY! Around here they were complaining that August 31st is too early to start.

  4. Some of my teacher friends loved to be on the summer school roster; salary was good and the curriculum was different.
    Happy teaching!

    1. I'm sure it's great for the teachers. Subs... Yeah, the teachers aren't out much if at all.

  5. So much for a summer break. At least those kids are well-behaved!

  7. Those well-behaved, hard at work kids. Don’t they know you have a blog? They're just inconsiderate.

  8. That must have been a surprise to get the call! "Poor" kids in school; not much of a break for them (but I guess that's the price they pay for not performing well during the traditional academic year). Enjoy summer!

    1. I'd feel sorry for them, but the class was voluntary. They're there because they want to make up those credits, so that's good on them.

  9. A summer school sub? Good for you! And I'm happy you got the call. I'm also happy that the students were well behaved.

    1. I don't get called much. Practically not at all.

  10. At least you didn't mind getting called. And it's some extra money. I'm sure that always helps. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

  13. Sounds like summer school is a good deal :) But I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer break and get plenty of time off!

    1. Oh yeah, time off is not an issue.

  14. I am kind of happy that all the kids were good even though it was summer. I would have hated it having to go to summer school

  15. I hope you get called just enough to bring in the money you need...and otherwise get to relax all summer!

  16. It's Winter here and we've just begun a two week mid year break! Hallelujah! You try to have as many breaks as you can Liz!

    ReplyDelete
  17. It's always nice to get a little bit of extra work. Hope you get plenty of those this summer, but not so many that you can't enjoy your break as well. ;-)

  18. What's this a group of summer school kids working silently and diligently? Which planet do these children come from? lol! I never heard of such things happening. I would think this is a good sign for your summer teaching, but it's still quite early. Maybe next week the kids will give you something to write about. :D

  19. Well, that was a shifting of gears! You're obviously a flexible person.
