*Update* I was simply unaware of the duties of a LTS and was under the impression that I would have a lot more guidance through the curriculum (as that's how the teacher made it seem). It makes me feel better doing the work now knowing it is what was expected of me as a LTS. I am going to tough it out until the end of the school year. Every day it feels easier to lesson plan, but harder in terms of the students' attitude towards the class. I have decided to start treating the class as my own instead of trying to treat it as hers. That made it a lot more difficult because I was teaching a class the way someone else would vs the way I would. ** I am currently long term subbing a Spanish class for a teacher who is out on maternity leave. I got the position because the teacher and I have a mutual friend who recommended me. When I began the assignment I was given given enough lessons to last the next two weeks. Well the two weeks are up and she hasn't given me anymore direction for them. When I ask her what she wants them to work on, she tells me to look for worksheets in the workbook to give them or to have them do an oral activity. I don't want to give her a hard time because she's now got a 2 w/o but I'm assembling activities/worksheet packets, grading them, entering in the grades, and even calling parents. The students are getting harder to work with every day because they are tired of these worksheets and having a sub in general. While I speak Spanish, I have a very hard time teaching and explaining it. I am beginning to feel very burnt out. My income requires me to work another job so I don't have much time outside of school. I often grade during class or on my lunch break and planning period, this teacher likes to give them 6/7 grades per week. This school district also has a "Mainstream" special ed system meaning I have high functioning SpEd students in my classes who are a pleasure but it creates a LOT more work for me because they complete alternative assignments and most students need to be worked with 1 on 1 or else they won't do the work at all. Should I speak up about the lesson planning? I don't want to get her in trouble or give her a hard time especially because I am lucky to have found the LTSP and I'm not a mom but can only assume she's got a lot going on. I don't want to make my friend regret recommending me but I feel that because the teacher's maternity leave ends two days before the last day of school that she's already in "summer vacation" mode.
