    You are actually required to TEACH as a sub- no more
    "babysitting." I enjoyed subbing for the DOE. Times have
    certainly changed since you left. Additionally, you are
    required to have a principal (ANY doe principal in any
    grade) to nominate you to become a sub. Don't worry if
    you don't know a principal, simply send out your resume
    because many schools need subs and would rather pay
    for a sub than a full time teacher. Good Luck and don't let
    your past experiences taint possible new experiences. As
    a sub these day, you'll learn a lot!
