Hello everyone! I was just hired as an elementary substitute teacher, and I was wondering what general advice/tips you more experienced subs might have... I have absolutely no experience, so I could use any advice you can offer! I have an especially difficult time being assertive and showing the kids who's boss. I know I'll get better with more experience, but I'm in desperate need of advice when it comes to the general dos and donts on the first day... Also, does anyone know of any good books out there on substitute teaching techniques? Thank you all very much! I hope you're all enjoying the new school year!
