I graduated in 2008 and had been substitute teaching (for the most part) since then. I've had a couple of terms teaching kindergarten and K-9 phys-ed, grade 4, 5 (French), and 8 (ELA), and a grade 5/6 split class.
My name is Christine and I think I'm an alright teacher (and person in general).
This blog is for (but not limited to) substitute teachers (obviously), teachers, current students (who have had substitute teachers, dreaming about having a substitute teacher, or wishing they didn't have a substitute teacher), anyone who has had a substitute teacher (whether it was last week, last year, or sometime in the last century), and anyone else who is looking for a laugh, wants to catch a glimpse into the life of a substitute teacher, or just wants to support me in my effort to being a (mostly) really awesome substitute teacher.
Take a seat in one of the desks at one of my (many) classrooms, pop a squat on the carpet during circle time, or pull up a chair and listen in during small group time.
Things are gonna get funny. Sometimes things might get a little serious. But mostly funny... I work with kids and I think we can all agree they are hilarious.
Sidenote: If I ever mention a student's name in a post you can assume I have changed it. If I ever mention the name of a school you can also assume I have changed that. I will not give out any identifying characteristics about any students nor will I tell you anything they tell me in confidentiality (or anything I hear about a student in confidentiality).
