Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Compton, CA – July 12, 2012
As a substitute teacher, each day was different! I would experience different schools, different grades, different structures each day. I would spend an hour or so on each discipline. I learned the importance of being flexible and able to "go with the flow". I enjoyed being able to meet different principals, administrators and teachers. Since I was on call to different schools within the district, I was able to see how each school was organized and the required materials administered. Although there is freedom in going to different schools, the difficulty comes in the fact that I have to constantly adjust to a new set of rules. I never had the freedom to get into my own routine and master accomplishing set goals.
