i had one more thing to say about subs. Due to budget cuts we are not going to be even having substitutes, but rather a teacher's aide or just cancellations when special areas teachers are out. Homeroom teachers are going to use aides and double up. Subs will be missed...

  I just had a sub yesterday because I was on a field trip. It was great, no supplies gone and all materials were in place. Just a few newsprint paintings done by student who were waiting for me and wasted a little watercolor. She probably thought I would like them. I was surprised and pleased to see the room left so orderly because I have had the other kind. Subs do have it tough and they are picked upon by the students who think it's a free period. When I subbed for a fellow teacher they tried every trick known, out their seats doing nothing, playing dumb, bathroom tag, etc. So I know how it feels, however supplies are precious and they should be the #1 priority for the sub to watch. Or have a movie and no supplies out.
