Apr 2 -- Substitute teaching: it's not as easy as it looks!
Tuesday, April 02, 2013
Well, I got up this morning with the 6:30a alarm and ate my nutritious breakfast. I got the kids up and getting ready for school then hit the treadmill. The plan was to do a mile or 2 this a.m. but while I was walking, school called needing me to sub for the first time this year. Since I only had 20 min to get ready, I had to stop at 15 minutes (.77 miles) but I hope to get at least a mile or two w/Leslie Sansone tonight.
The kids today weren't bad for the most part, but there were a couple that were about to be the death of me! Some kids just have no concept of respect! I dealt with it the best I could but I know they would be happy if I never subbed again. In fact, they'd probably be happy if I stepped in front of a bus! I am thankful for the chance to earn a little extra money ($65 a day in our district which isn't too bad) but with some of these kids I ought to qualify for hazard pay. For those who teach or are subs, how do you handle the mouthy obnoxious kids that cross your path and make you wish you were anywhere but at school?
Now it's nap time before I get in my evening workout. Rest is much needed since I didn't sleep well last night :(
