Only the worst jobs are made available to me.
Pros: you don't have to work on days that you need to take off.
Cons: if you aren't someone who the school knows, you will not get good assignments, and what you do get offered will be low level para jobs.
I have been waiting for some decent sub jobs, but they never come my way. All I ever get called for or get shown are bilingual, Spanish/English classes, and I don't speak Spanish, or para for kindergarten or special ed. I thought I would get experience in the classroom so that I can put this on my resume when I look for teaching jobs next year, but – more... I will have to be dishonest because I never, never get offered a legitimate teaching position. Also, I am registered in all 23 schools in my home district and I only very occasionally get a chance for a position there. I have to go to the next city, which is predominantly Spanish speaking to try to get an assignment. In the 5 schools I am registered in this more difficult district, I get more assignments than I do from 23 schools in my own town. This is not a fair system at all. – less
