When I graduated college with my teaching certificate, so did about a billion other people. Our state was severely over saturated with teachers looking for jobs. A few jobs I applied for, I was one of 3000 that applied for that one particular job. If I wanted a teaching job, I needed to move somewhere like Arizona or Texas. Both of those states were looking for teachers, and my teaching certificate from Michigan was valid in both of those states. However, I was married and my husband had a job here. Moving across the country was not an option. So I did what a lot of newly graduated teachers did…I became a substitute teacher!
To be honest, I loved substitute teaching. I’ve often thought about doing it again. My favorite, believe it or not, was lower elementary and middle school. I know…it probably seems strange that I like the really little kids and the tween/teenagers. Those ages were always just so much fun! I did a long term substitute teacher position in a 6th and 7th grade English class and that was a lot of fun. Listening to their viewpoints on the books they were assigned to read was something I really enjoyed! However, there were those times that I absolutely DREADED my sub job and couldn’t wait until that last bell rang.
Substitute Teacher Printable
One of the things I didn’t enjoy doing, as much, was writing the note to the teacher about the day. I always felt like I didn’t know what to say. Having a form to fill out would have been much easier, plus teachers are busy in the morning. They don’t have time to sit and read a long letter. Having something simple and to the point to read is better. That’s why I put together this free substitute teacher printable!
