A few years ago I started posting my end of year numbers. I got the idea from another subbing blogger who posted his, and I've been doing it ever since. (Previous years: 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010)
Of the 180 school days, I worked 145. This is up from last year's 131. In fact, it's my highest number of days worked. This number does not include the 7 days I worked for the continuation high school in July and August, nor does it include the Friday Surprise.
Of those 145 days, 14 of them I covered teachers who did not have a conference period, and 51 of them I covered an extra class on the teacher's prep period. Yet, for some reason it felt like I never got a prep period. (Clearly that was not the case.)
I did not work the first day of school, but I did work the last. I actually worked three days of the last week of school, which I would say is unusual, except that's similar to what I worked last year.
I spent 23 days at the continuation high school, 72 days covering high school classes, and 45 days covering middle school classes.
- English: 41 days
- This year's grade winner is 11th grade as I spent 12 days covering those (as well as 4 individual periods).
- 2nd place goes to 10th grade English with 10 days (and 2 individual periods).
- Science: 20 days
- No chemistry or physics days (sigh), but 9 days in biology and 6 days covering 8th grade science.
- Social Studies: 36 days
- Government: 16 days. (Those days included the week with this one government class...) And one day of just one period.
- Geography: 12 days, and 4 individual periods, including the last day of school.
- Math: 26 days
- This year's winner is algebra 1 with 11 days and 2 individual periods.
- I did not cover a full day of geometry, but I did cover 6 individual periods. Only one day of calculus, but 3 days of algebra 2.
- Special Ed: 23 days plus 13 extra periods
- There's a reason I've had a lot of special ed. stories this year...
- Misc: 21 days
- 4 days of "roving" (including testing days and days where I covered several different teachers)
- 1 day of ASB
- 5 days in art
- 1 day in choir (which was a miserable day as I was coming down with an evil cold)
- 2 days of Spanish & 1 day of French
- 6 days in computer classes
- 1 period of P.E.
- 4 individual periods in shop classes (including 2 in auto shop--I did not know they still had auto shop)
So, a busy year. That's a good thing.
