August 25, 2006



I'm nervous about bringing a book and/or project to sub teaching at first. I've actually seen the subs teach at the school I am working at.

The tunic is coming along nicely-think I can handle it? even in the black?


I always have a project, just in case. About half the time I don't work on it or read the book I have, but you seriously don't want to be caught with nothing to do in a classroom! Especially when there are no students to watch. :) I teach quite a bit at Monroe, but those prep periods are killers!

Yes...I swear it's very easy & you'll have no probs - even in the black. The only least bit tricky thing is getting it started correctly. And even that's nothing too special. :) Besides, I'm only an email way if you have troubles!


Ok now I'm also impressed with your speed reading skills.

I'm ashamed to say that I am related to one of those ignorant teacher's that doesn't know how to spell her own name. Isn't that terrible?

Beautiful work on the pullover! I like the stitch alot.


Kelly - Speed reading from desperation! Plus it's a really good book. ;)

When you hear tales of subs who've drifted through classrooms, your hair can stand on end. Teachers too, for that matter. I was talking about it the other day with a teacher at school & she pointed out that some get into the profession for the control factor. Telling kids what to do & having them obey satisfies some deep-seated need. But that's not real good for the student, you know?

I'm sure there are many more deep, dark reasons to teach kids. I do it for the time being 'cause it's fun. :)


I used to amaze myself with how much I could achieve when I worked 30hrs per week in a paid job. I guess the old "if you want something done, ask a busy person" is true. :o)

    ----"The power of accurate observation is frequently called cynicism by those who don't have it." - George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

    ----"I do not consider it an insult, but rather a compliment to be called an agnostic. I do not pretend to know where many ignorant men are sure -- that is all that agnosticism means." - Clarence Darrow, Scopes trial, 1925.

    ----"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours." - Sir Stephen Henry Roberts (1901-1971)
