We often don’t consider how great being a substitute teacher can be! It’s hard when you feel like your life is in limbo waiting the next teaching job to come along. But whether you are trying to land your dream job or to just survive your first few weeks of subbing, here are a few things that may help you thrive as a substitute teacher!
Reasons Why Subbing is Fantastic!
A big one is that you are able to just enjoy the students for the day, not having to worry too much about parents, conferences, or other sometimes stressful things that go along with being a teacher.
Unless you are in a long term sub assignment, if you have a TERRIBLE day you don’t have to come back… EVER!
YOU are doing the school a huge favor. Usually, everyone is happy you are there to save the day when one of their teachers is out sick.
Primary students are infinitely curious about a new sub. Usually the teacher has prepared them to be on their best behavior. They are excited you are coming in. 🙂
If you come into the classroom confident and with your emergency toolkit (including your bag of tricks) most likely you have a fantastic day and thrive as a substitute teacher no matter what happens.
