I have mentioned it before, but I am a substitute teacher for elementary schools. (I have been trying to land a full time position for five years and in my area getting a teaching job is extremely difficult.) This particular year, I have been blessed to sub because I was able to spend ALOT of time with my baby. If I had been teaching full time, he would have been with a babysitter all day, everyday, and I would have had papers to grade and lessons to plan- it would have been terrible.
My posts may be a bit sparse for the next couple months since I have been asked to finish the year for a teacher in second grade. Today is the first day. I have been in this room before so I am not nervous, but I always feel anxious in new situations. It will be difficult just coming in for the last two months, but I have had worse situations.
Wish me luck!
