Hi Mr. Robinson in Oregon. I've been ask to sub-teach for a Kindergarten teacher who will be leaving in Dec. due to the birth of her 1st child. I would love to ease the stress for those children in her class when I do step in for a while until there primary teacher returns yet, can you let me know how I might I prepare myself in advance? I'm certain a few lesson plans will be waiting for me, however, for those days when not enough lesson plans are available, Should I seek out, in advance, from on-line sites a few "lesson plans" ? Any suggestions? It is my desire for the children to trust I will be working hard for them & have their interest in mind, always. thank you for any help you provide me today.
