Substitute Teaching

I’ve taken on this wonderful new role in my life. That of the substitute teacher.

About 9 years ago now I had started the process. Then things got rocky with my ex and it was put on the back burner. Never really to be thought about again until a month or so ago.

At my a PTA meeting back in April a couple of my friends were talking about it. How they’re doing it, loving it, but mostly how much the district needed some good substitutes.

I talked to my husband about it that day and went forward with the process. I stayed right on top of all the paperwork, trainings and so on. From start to finish, it took me about 14 days to get on the platform.

Two weeks ago I grabbed my first assignment. Afternoon half day I’m second grade. It was wonderful and has only got better from there. Today I’m working a full day. Morning in Kindergarten and afternoon in 3rd grade.

This morning will be the first class I’ve taught in twice. I saw the kids from that class yesterday afternoon and told them, they were so excited ❤

The best part?? So far, I’ve only taken assignments at the Elementary school that my youngest 2 children attend. I get to see them in the halls, at lunch and recess. More importantly though, I still get to take them to school and pick them up. It truly is the best of both worlds.
