Sub pay was good but no benefits or recognition
Guest Teacher (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – September 22, 2017
I feel like as a sub, I had no barrier of protection against any negative criticism given by any co-worker (like other staff members). The reviews I received were all negative and I wasn't given an opportunity to deny, rectify or dispute them. Based on the harsh criticism and exaggerations of any given person's feedback, I would be punished disproportionately by being banned from the school where the critique came from. That was unfair and ridiculous. Likewise, sadly all of the hard, wonderful work I did wasn't acknowledged or rewarded. Also, there was no formal training for subs so it was a little intimidating. Luckily I had experience from being an instructional assistant and working around teachers.
