I think the problem is doing it backwards. I began teaching and taught for 4 years. Then I chose to leave the school I was teaching in to try to go into the public sector. Now that I've found how hard it is to get in the public school system, I went ahead and put myself on a nearby school district's sub list. I dont like subbing! It's not the actual work or the kids or anything like that; I just hate getting up and getting ready to teach every morning of the week and maybe getting called once. It always seems I get called on Fridays or a day that I have to take my son or myself to the doctor! Every morning is stressful to me as I dont know what I'm doing or where I teach even if I do get a call. I just hate not knowing what my day will be like until 7a.m. Is it just me?
