Substitute Teaching 101

Welcome to my blog about a rewarding job I've had for almost 15 years. As we take this journey together, I want my readers to come away with ideas for facing a new class each day with enthusiasm, not dread. We have a unique job with unusual requirements, I'm proud of my profession and enjoy the flexibility it allows.
The next installments will cover a myriad of topics all designed to make the classroom assignments less daunting for you. We'll start from the beginning steps in becoming a "sub" and jump into the nuts and bolts of the classroom as seen through our eyes.


  1. Just wanted to come over and wave hello to you on your new blog (saw your post on SS). Great topic for a blog! Good luck - I'm sure you will do great!

  2. Bravo for your very informative blog, I have substituted at the beginning of my teaching career, and at the end of it...always exciting!!

    One of the best aspects of "subbing" is how much the substitute teacher can learn from other classrooms: the organizing, procedures, hints, other teachers habits, bulletin boards, handouts, and more!!
    I always kept a little notebook handy for my own notes and "good ideas I've seen today." There is alot to be shared with good teaching.

  3. "...for almost 15 years."

    Should be a great wealth of experience for the new blog. Good luck!

  4. Great blog! I found you at the . Wishing you all the best with it!
