Exciting new adventure every day
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Norco, CA – October 10, 2014
A typical day at work is showing up at the school office to get the room key, going to the classroom, reading the master teacher's lesson plans, picking up the students at the blacktop, bringing them to class, and teaching the lessons. At the end of the day I dismiss the students, write a detailed note about the day for the master teacher to read, lock the room and return the key to the office. I learned that substitute teaching is a fun and exciting profession that offers new things each time I teach. Every classroom is different, every school is different, every student is different. The hardest part about the job is adjusting to the flow of the classroom. Students get into a rhythm and feel comfortable following their daily procedures. As a substitute in a new environment I try to adapt to that particular class and continue with the flow the students are used to. I want students to feel as comfortable as they can while a new teacher is there. The most enjoyable part of the job is the students. I really enjoy seeing their faces when they learn or understand something. They gain a confidence about themselves that is very fulfilling to an educator. When they are learning it means I am doing my job correctly.
