I am a current teacher and have zero interest in subbing once I retire in a couple of years, with that said thanks to all of you who do sub, you are badly needed and is not an easy job.

Just here to complain today In one of the wealthiest districts in the state, they gave me EIGHT 50-minute classes (8th graders) today with a 25-minute lunch!! If they had used a FT, unionized teacher on their staff to cover the extra classes, they would have had to pay her/him a nice additional stipend - so of COURSE they simply squeezed me in for the "generous" daily rate (NET $94.00). SO GLAD that this is my last year. Okay, rant over

I'm also planning on retiring in a couple of years, and I definitely plan on substituting just so I can see my colleagues, etc. I will pick and choose, but sometimes you still have to cover an extra class. So do our certified teachers. Kids simply can't be unsupervised.

I'm a high school teacher, and our subs don't teach. They supervise. The teacher who is out is expected to provide a lesson that requires minimal effort on the substitute's part.

Long-term subs are a different game. I will never do that.

I would not be a substitute for teachers if children unless I needed the money for food. Many of the students are nuts. I wish their parents could see how they act. No one really cares, much less them. When you call the parents in, they act worse than their kids. No respect.

I prefer teaching adults at the adult school. I occasionally substitute for teachers at my own school who work on a day that I don't or at night. My two classes are during the day.
