I'm pretty excited this morning. Hope it lasts! ;-) I've been hired as a substitute teacher in our school district and have an orientation next Monday. This deal is just too good to be true...so in a month or more I may change my mind!
It's very flexible: I can go online and block out days that I don't want to work, and they won't call. I can leave days that I do want to work open so they can call. They don't care if you block out days...just so you don't refuse if they call you for that day.
So, it should work out with art jobs that I have. Art and teaching...two of my most favorite things to do! Can it get any better? I'm just feeling blessed today!

Thanks, guys! I asked for junior high/middle school and high school.
I think I'm an odd one that likes the middle school ages...
I had coffee with a friend this morning that has subbed in the area...she's now teaching full time...and she thought this would be perfect for my schedule needs...I'm pumped! Can ya tell?

That's really good news, sounds great, just think of all the people God has lined up to meet you and be blessed - all in His perfect plan.

Go for it Karen!

That's very cool!!!! You will be great!

I subbed for two years and only had one bad day. Here was my intro:

Good morning, I am blah blah. There are 3 types of subs. Type A will sit there like a bump on a log. You can pretty much do anything you want because he or she will never say anything. Type B is all bark but no bite. He or she gives warnings but never follows through. Type C will give a warning and follow through with it. I am type C. If someone decides they want me to prove it I will, but I'd prefer just to get on with things and have a good day.

It worked almost every time. The one exception was a day at a school run by a Type B principal.
