    Many, many kudos to those substitute teachers who have the courage to do
    what a million years...would not do! I've substituted twice in my
    life and vowed never again! I DO hope this organizational thrust takes hold
    and comes to fruitation. Not only does it benefit them but also us teachers
    who often desparately need these wonderful people. Our sub pool is almost
    non-existant due to California making 3rd grade and down small class sizes
    of 20 or less. Our good sub pool went to these classrooms plus anyone else
    who could walk and talk at the same time. The good has gotten mixed in with
    the bad...but that's another story.

    OH, yes. Subs. I wish there were some ways...other than preparing our kids,
    making good lesson plans, help this potential organization
    succeed. They've got a long, uphill battle ahead to make a difference.
