Algebra Tutor Position
Algebra Tutor (Former Employee) –  Montclair, CAAugust 12, 2015
The main goal of this position and the district as a whole is to ensure that all students learn, understand and excel in each category. The teachers are hard-working and although they may be stretched to their limits on a daily basis, continue to work with students for the highest level of understanding possible. Being an Algebra tutor is rewarding in that one is able to help students during their development process and prepare them to use certain topics over the course of their lives.

How I learned to be a good substitute teacher
Substitute teacher (Current Employee) –  Chaffey JUHSD, Ontario, CAJune 19, 2014
A typical day at work is alternately simple or challenging. My main responsibilities are to carry out the classroom teacher's lesson plan, help the students, and make sure that they y are dfulfilling the day's asignment. These tasks may sound uncomplicated, and usually there are very few problems.

On the other hand, I also encounter some younger, less-mature students, who prefer to spend the time talking with a friend. These students like to take advantage of a substutute teacher. A few of them have actually told me that the "sub" has no authority in the classroom! Fortunately, only a small percentage of the students have such attitudes. Most do not cause such trouble. But if they do, there are a few things that I can do to hold them accountable. For instance, I tell them that I will collect their class work at the end of the period. Then I warn them that when Mrs. Smith returns, the students' work will show her which students worked and which ones wasted time. This warning is usually enough to get the talkers to stop wasting time and to start working.

Naturally, when students are determined to misbehave and waste class time, it is my least enjoyable and most difficult day at work. At such times, I must continually walk around and monitor the students.

Of course, even the difficult days at my job are not completely negative; they are positive challenges from which I can learn. Dealing with challenging students has helped me improve in classroom leadership and management. At times, I have successfully motivated some students to try to accomplish something worthwhile.

Moreover,
  more... there have been many good times when I have been able to interact with some of the students, not onlyto help them but also to get to know them and their character.

Most importantly, through enduring the hard times I have learned that it helps to be organized. As an example, it is absolutely necessary to arrive iearly in the class room so that I can study the lesson plans and locat all materials. I need to make all preparations write instructions on the board, etc.) before the students arrive. These small steps help to avoid many discipline problems before they start.

As for co-workers, a substitute teacher does not get many opportunities to work with others on the job. Most of the time, I am the only adult in the classroom. But I have met a few teachers that I have admired for ther creativity and their love for teaching.

A lot of good and not so good
Substitute teacher (Former Employee) –  Ontario, CaJanuary 5, 2012
Working as a substitute proved to be great, but the system is flawed. Also, there is little feedback unless you mess up in a big way.
Pros
discount food at the cafeteria
Cons
not very steady work
