I agree wholeheartedly with above post by TEACH PEACH!! STS uses you as a pawn the way Bush uses troops in Iraq almost. Human sacrifice is what I mean! Grind them up! They will get more!
They send you in to some real bad assignments. They give you very little details what to expect & then you do get blamed for things that were not your fault often placed in an impossible situation with horrible, out of control kids or vague lesson plans the teacher expects you to interpret perfectly! !! They figure if you fail miserably, they will get someone else for the job. Be advised: THEY ARE NOT THERE TO HELP YOU and only worry about filling a teacher's absence with a warm body!
You don't really count in their eyes. They have strength in numbers with a BIG pool of desperate substitute teachers to draw from at least in DE it appears!
Teach Peach is also correct about how rude, obnoxious, arrogant & down right miserable some teachers are in Red Clay & especially Brandywine school dist.
I think they feel since you are only a SUB & that you don't count for anything. I like how Teach Peach said they feel you are SUB human! I think also this is how these vicious teachers view you!
Ask your self, you you really want to put yourself in this frightful situation day in & out with stone cold STS & many a rotten teacher?? If yes, give it a try!
