Same as Certified Board Substitute
Certified Board Substitute (Former Employee) – Henrico County, VA – October 10, 2016
Nelson Mandela once said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." In 2015, I stepped into the world of teaching as a Board Substitute, which is very different from a certificated standard substitute. My role was dependant on lesson planning, classroom management, parent and student interaction, counselor and co-worker. The demands placed on teachers are exorbitant and require a steady mindset and willingness to help future generations become their very best.
The hardest part of the job was realizing that each student had to make a decision to want/desire their education as there were many students that simply attended school as a requirement. However, with that came the students that enjoyed school and yearned daily for more knowledge; it was these students that helped make the long nights of grading and lesson preparation all worthwhile.
