My First Day as a Sub Teacher

I am so sorry that I haven’t posted in a week 😦 Last week got pretty hectic for me, especially since I got to work 3 times last week. I know that seems like a stupidly small amount, but for me that is a big deal and more than anything I have had to do in a long time. And, I think everyone knows how worn out kids can make you, especially when you have to teach. I often don’t think many people understand teaching, how it can be 100% something you hate and so stressful but yet something you love even more. And how freaking tiring it is to get kids to find the correct answer and keep them under control. It is certainly something that I know the Fiancé will never understand, and he doesn’t. Plus, I have been staying strong with my 28-day boot camp. I can’t say the same for my blogging and boot camp buddy, gwen ;P

Regardless, this post isn’t about the reasons why I haven’t posted.

Ten days ago (eek, I can’t believe it was that long ago!) I had my first subbing job. I got the call at 8:20 a.m., for a 7th grade science classroom. Now it is time for another one of my questions. Guess what time their middle school starts?!

8:00 a.m.!

Exactly. So, I had to hurry my butt up to get ready to get there by the 9:30 a.m. time I said I could show up by. Fiancé was in the shower and I told him the entire news when he got out. He asked if there was anything he could do to help me get ready, because he is awesome and I love him dearly.

I had him finish packing part of my lunch, get the things I needed to put in my purse, and I think grab some of my clothes. Although, some of this might be wrong, it’s been awhile and I do not have the best memory in the world. I was able to head out of the door and get there at 9:25.

The day went really well and I got lucky that the co-teacher just stayed with me during the content classes (the actual science classes, not the miscellaneous classes he had).

Then lunch time came around and I went down to the teachers lounge to eat. I opened my lunch and this is what I found. Click the picture to see it larger.

I should have his name legally changed to Fiance.

Ahhh 🙂 I secretly read it in my lunch bag, as I didn’t want to look like a total n00b on my first day. He is just too good at sneaking stuff past me. But, it made me smile and made my day much better.

Heck, it made me not want to slap the bratty girl in my sixth period class.

Or the fact that I could have lost my teachers license and gone to jail.

But, those are one and the same.
