Re: Subs in Texas

It depends on the district..Our district will hire anyone who has finished high school to sub (lovely) I've had the wife of the local tattoo artist and a nurse's aid sub for me. Occaisionally, I'll actually get someone who's gone to college, but generally not. My worst sub (I get him all the time, too) is a retired podiatrist. He reminds me of Milton in the movie Office Space. I'm always expecting him to start muttering about his stapler.......He hides behind my desk the entire class period staring at the students in with fear in his eyes...It's pathetic.

       I have a few questions for the Texans in this group. In order to sub in Texas, do you have to have a teaching certificate, or is it okay to just have a bachelor's degree? What is sub pay? How do you get on the list to sub? Thanks in advance to anyone who might have this information. It's really for my brother-in-law, who lives near Dallas. We're in Memphis, where people are still digging out from the terrible storm last Tuesday.
