I have gone over the differences in detail previously, so I will not rehash them here. When I speak of being "disrespected", I am not referring to disrespect by teachers. I am speaking of disrespect by the "system". I believe it should be changed. Additionally, after 13 years of subbing, This is my slowest start ever, so even though the first few weeks are generally slow, they have never been this slow. In a typical year, I would have worked eight or nine of the first 17 days. Working only three days is unusual and is a cause for concern. The pace could remain slower all year due to previously contracted teachers getting asssignment priority.
