May 20, 2007



I emailed you yesterday about what I would do-and yes,you answered your own question. As a sub, I get a staff ID badge, I just leave it sitting in the office when I am not working or volunteering.


Sounds like a no-win situation to be an auto-sub again. The sub coordinator's jealous attitude does nothing to make it feel worthwhile, I imagine! And what an inappropriate question.


I've been following your blog for a couple of years now, and it seems as if you've been a lot more stressed this year then when you just subbed when you wanted to. It also seems to me that your attendance is 99.9% better than the teaching staff, and you certainly deserved the time off. If you don't really, really, really want to do the auto sub thing again, then don't.


I agree with the others. There doesn't seem to be any benefit to auto sub'ing for you, but you already know that. Go with your gut, don't do it.


I'm with the rest of them... it sounds like you'll lose nothing by dropping down from auto-sub to just regular sub, and what you'll gain would be well worth it.


I would totally drop the auto sub. That way you can take a day if you need one and not work. You never know what will happen in the future, you might be needed for an emergency or something. There is no benefit to being an auto sub and the flexibility would be worth way more to me anyway.


Yes, it seems that you have answered your own question. There doesn't seem to be a real benefit to being an auto sub. If you go back to being a regular sub, you will still be a preferred sub and teachers will request based on their respect for you. I don't think you will miss the $1.50 additional per day and you will have less stress and not have to be there doing busy work.


Yes, Bron, you've answered your own question. Sounds to me as though staying on as an auto-sub would be akin to belting yourself over the head with a big stick everyday just for the title. :o)


Put that way, it looks like being a regular sub is much better for your situation.


Can't wait to see it modeled it looks great!
Oh and on the other.. everyone and you said anything I would have added.
