Is everyone working again? Jobs are not plentiful but i have worked two days. BTW, why is this board now divided into boxes? The main teacher board still looks the same as i always has.

We have about five weeks left before the next school year starts back up. This summer vacation sure went by pretty quickly. With all of the current events going on. I sure hope that we can pull it together and that things can run smoothly. Cheers to the new year :

Can anyone tell me how the AESOP (spelling ?) substitute caller system works? I just heard that one of the districts I sub in is going to use it next year. Also, do you like it better than a human caller? Thanks!

Okay, it has happened to nearly every sub. What has been your experience at being left out of school activities.

This topic came to me when during teacher appreciation week, all the regular teachers had lovely little gifts and surprises in their mail boxes daily and subs got zip.

It is also a problem when it comes to ordering out lunch or coffee...special activities...even theme days. Yes, I have been the sub in the turtle neck during tropical shirt day.

Ever fell out of the loop?
