Adventures in Subbing, Day 1
Today I had my first substitute teaching job. I learned a few things.
#1 DO NOT EVER GET A SUBSTITUTE TEACHER FOR YOUR CLASSROOM AND NOT GIVE THEM LESSON PLANS...EVER!
I mean seriously, how am I supposed to do a good job at keeping control of the classroom if I have nothing for your kids to do for an hour and a half??
#2 No matter what the kids will try and take advantage of you.
I thought I was ready for this, but these kids were CRAZY! I think they might just be those out of control types of kids anyways, but man did I have a headache!
#3 Intermediate School is not the same as Junior High/Middle School
It means 5th and 6th grade. You know, the grade level I would NEVER want to teach. Yeah. Those kids were crazy.
It wasn't all bad, but it opened my eyes to a new meaning behind the scripture, 'I can do all things in Christ which strengthen me.'
Tomorrow I'm saying a longer prayer.
