Re: worthless subs

Yes I have had some worthless ones - played dumb or were dumb. In your particular case do lock up everything
you can and make sure all supplies for the particular
lessons are on one table labeled "substitute day table"
Leave the sub a thank you note for being there that day
and leave a treat for them - like a candy bar and coins
for a soda or cup of coffee or if you feel really desperate enough to buy them a school lunch.. Maybe if they feel appreciated they will be on your side and keep the kids
out of your stuff. I have had subs go to the office and
tell the principal that they wanted to sub again but
never for art again - too much work!!! Good luck. Roberta
