Hey guys. This upcoming year and possibly future years I plan to sub while I attend school for my graduate degree. My current class schedule will allow me to sub at most 2 days a week this semester. Unfortunately, I have very little experience subbing or knowing how to become a sub. I kind of a became a classroom teacher right off the bat and did very little subbing. I did apply as a sub when I first got my credential because my mentor teacher wanted me to be able to sub for her if she needed to leave, and didn't do so often. I forgot how the process went and most basic things about it like: 1. Do they interview me to add me to the sub pool? 2. If so, who will interview me? 3. What are they looking for? 4. How can I translate my classroom experiences into skills that they would find desirable in a sub? 5. Anything I should refrain from saying that would be good for a classroom teacher but not good for a sub? 6. Even though I know I'm only probably going to be able to sub 2 days out of the week for this semester, is it better if I say I am able to sub more often than that? 7. All my experience is in teaching science and technology. How do I show them that I could be an effective sub for other subjects as well? Also, any good books I should read in preparation for becoming a sub? Or good tips from those who have subbed extensively? I imagine subbing is going to be a very different animal altogether than owning and managing my own classroom where I have the freedom to set my own structure, and the time to build relationships with students. Any tips?
