Substitute Teacher (K-12) (Former Employee) –  Arcadia, CAJuly 30, 2013
I substitute taught in every grade except 12th grade during my years at Arcadia Unified School District. I learned to think fast and handle new situations through all the different classroom situations. I always tried to arrive early, in order that I would have time to acquaint myself with the classroom, the lesson plan, and a quick glance at the lessons, especially the first few. Then at recess or lunch, I would look over the later lessons. I always made every effort to complete all lessons and tasks with the students, clean up the classroom when finished for the day and grade any work that the teacher wanted me to correct. The hardest part of the usual substitute teaching is not knowing the classroom, students, and lessons as well as the regular teacher would.

I particularly enjoyed the long-term assignments as one had the time for planning and getting to know the students that a regular teacher would enjoy. The hardest part is for an English teacher in high school, you have so many essays to grade. I wanted to do a detailed job of going through them, however, that is very difficult due to time crunches. I spent most weekends and spring break reading and correcting essays and papers. The co-workers were wonderful for the most part. Even some that I had a little trouble with at first I found a way to make positive connections with them. Working with the students, helping them to learn and influencing them in positive ways is the most rewarding part of the job. Hearing them laugh, seeing their pride in their achievements and hearing that you have made a difference in their
