So, it's five days before Christmas and I log into AESOP. My main school district is missing from the list of possible jobs. I call the school district and they say, "Oh, we've removed you from our sub list. I said, "Why?" Well apparently when I was subbing one afternoon, I let the gym class take a 5 minute break. Their classes were 90 minutes, and they had been playing nonstop for an hour. Another gym teacher saw them sitting on the gym floor. They complained that I had not made them work the entire 90 minutes.

Get this, though, if one of them had passed out, I would have been in deep doo-doo.

The school district also said that another permanent teacher complained that I allowed her class to read a chapter ahead in their reading books. Apparently it spoiled the teacher's lesson plans for the next day. I said, "You've got to be kidding!

MJ I identify with Lauren. I am also a substitute and have been substituting for approximately 4 years. Full time teachers in my most recent position were rude and quick to comment negatively about my performance. Most of their comments were extremely petty, and the negative comments came trickling in to the administration only a week into the school ...See More
