    I just interviewed today, and I'm starting tomorrow! :) It's a middle school class in the Northwest; I'm certified to teach middle school. I'm excited, although I'm a little nervous about what to expect.

    Any tips for a new substitute teacher? Any ideas on things to bring, just in case.

    It's just one day, but I will be doing a lot of subbing for other teachers in that same middle school. (There is a shortage of middle level subs in the district.) I already have a few days lined up and I've barely been hired for an hour!

    Good luck. Always bring extra worksheets just in case you need time to kill. Be firm up front so the kids know you mean business.

    I remember how excited and nervous I was on my first day. I hope it was a good one for you.
