I seriously don’t need this…

Last night I found out in an email that my great grandmother had died on Monday.

Now I’m in a class where the teacher only left them to finish all the worksheets from their math and reading practice books.  No activities, no class routine, no ongoing management system.  I’ve come up with a few activites to do, and hopefully I can find the materials in this mess… but my emotions are running high and having to ask the students what their morning routine is really isn’t what I need right now. 

Definitely not subbing for this teacher again.

This appears to be my entire life at the moment…

Want this on a coffee mug. 

Aware at I’ve already reblogged this once. Don’t care.

Okay, who’s going to start producing products with this on it? :)



It should be every substitute teacher’s mantra.

My new teaching philosophy!

This piece was inspired by a heated discussion I had with a man who believes that teachers have an easy job. Please feel free to share it with others if you agree with the message.

I used to be a molecular biologist. I spent my days culturing viruses….

Great read! I’ve so many friends that think that because they have one child, they know something about teaching. Just because you have a child doesn’t mean you know how to teach. Call me when you have 30 children.

  • 4th grader: Do you know what I drank too much of last night?
  • Me, concerned: What?
  • 4th grader: Milk!
  • Me, laughing: Nice! I wish I could drink milk, and ice cream and cheese!
  • 4th grader: Screaming cheese?
  • Me: What? No, how can cheese scream?
  • 4th grader: With their mouths! That why they have holes!
  • Too cute!

I really want to start a philosophy book club, where we read works by a philosopher and then meet to discuss the readings and our thoughts about them… Anyone ever done something like this?

I would love for some of my followers to ask about my atheism! (in a kind and mutually respectful way. If you’re rude I’ll answer with a gif.)

Ask away!

Why is subbing not considered teaching experience??  These past two years have just been, what, a slack job?  Maybe if schools gave substitutes a little more credit, they’d get higher quality substitutes… Instead of acting line we don’t matter.
