Now that September has come and gone how did everyone do? I worked 8 days and one half day. I worked 2 and a half days at the high school I usually went to last year. I worked 6 days at a middle school that I hadn't gone to since April of 2012. I had taken it off the list of schools because I hated the administration. They called me about 3 times last year but I was always working at the high school. But I was not doing anything and calls weren't really coming my way so I took it. It was the actual bookkeeper. She needed somebody for an English class. Apparently their teacher had left them after the first week. I was part of a long line of substitutes that they had. I was there 6 days. All of their other subs had only lasted 2 days at the most. They were arranged in two period blocks. It was ELA/Reading, where there was a co-teacher as one of the students was labeled Special Education. Enrichment was the 3rd period and just really consisted of me reading from selections of Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul. Then in 4th/5th period it was ELA/Reading GT this class was good but a bit loud at times. Then lunch was mixed in with Advisory for 20 minutes which consisted of the students reading more. Then the last two period block were the most unruly bunch but after a while they mellowed. They wanted me to be their teacher since I had been their longer than their own teacher. This middle school had 9 periods. The ninth one was my conference and you had to do library duty during that time. This stint ended last Wednesday and then nothing until today, October 2nd. So how did you all do? Before taxes, I made $722.50. That's $722.50 more than what I made last year at this time. In August, I made only $42.50 for one four hour job in the last week in August that the district went back to school. But then again that's $42.50 more than I made last August, so you have to put things in perspective, .
