Ive had about 3 days last week when I was substitute teaching and the students were absolutely dreadful. There seemed to be nothing I could do to get them in control, and Im a strict male guy who walks around the class like no other. Im starting my student teaching in a week and I am a little discouraged. I have a great sense of humor and I will be teaching junior high science (I wish it was History) next year. Are there great differences in being the sub and discipline managing and being the regular teacher because I am kinda frustrated. Is substitute discipline always worse than regular teaching discipline, or is there no difference at all?
