Substitute Teaching is Worth It
You know, 90% of the students are really great and co-operative. Really, 80% will do the work when you ask them to. I mean it’s the 60% that really want to learn that make it worth while substitute teaching. It’s the other 50% that sometimes make it difficult and I feel bad for the 30% of the students that really are listening to me when the class gets in trouble. You know, the 10% that are actually sitting in their own desk. And I really appreciate that one student who told me her real name.
