Prince William County Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Woodbridge, VA – September 6, 2013
Arrival at the school is an easy one if you have substituted at this school before, so you know where the school is located. You enter the main office, where your equipment is given to you: keys to the room, lesson plans which were made by the absent Teacher, a folder describing school procedures and special instructions. The next place you go is to the absent Teacher's "mailbox", where you pick up any remaining equipment.You continue to the absent Teacher's room. It is still early, and students are scarce. You enter the room, making sure to lock the door behind you. There are additional instructions on the absent Teacher's desk, that may tell you to make 100 copies of the chapter 4 - test review. Then the children arrive and the day begins. A substitutes job is not easy not only do you have to make sure that the work the teacher provided is done and done completely, you also have to ensure that all safety measures are followed and met to the schools satisfaction while under your care. Each and every teacher wants not only for their kids to succeed, but fellow teachers and employees to as well. Some days can be harder than others dealing with such issues such as vulgar language, talking back, fighting, but that's all in a days work as a high school substitute. You must remain calm and continue to encourage the kids no matter how tough it can get. The most rewarding thing is seeing a student you have helped get a better score on a test or even the simple satisfaction of them thanking for just being there and giving them encouraging words.
