Re: Sub Problem


Date: Sat Aug 04 2001 - 15:36:39 PDT

Retired military make great subs. They are educated for the most part and in
their training they have had to be teachers and mentors to many. I teach on
a military post and when these guys or ladies come they are great. The kids
listen. We had a teacher to have emergency surgery last year and a retired
man took over the computer lab and he was wonder. He only wants to sub. I
heard that one state was recruiting in another country. It is a problem when
there are no subs. The teachers at my school last year had to fill in when
teachers were out and no subs available. The kids could have 8 different
teachers for that day and the teachers would lose their only plan time. What
a bummer. On the bright side...we could only lose our plan time one time per
quarter. The news stated last week that New York needed 8,000 teachers.

When we hear all the things that happens with just some of the people on this
list no wonder new teacher don't stay. Some that are really good and make a
difference .
