Jeannie Deanne, I am retired now but when I was teaching full-time you are just the kind of sub who would have more requests than you could handle. I am sure something will turn up for you. Has the principal been in to observe your teaching? If not, you might want to ask him/her to do that. Subs provide a great pool of wonderful applicants for a district t...See More
