    Question regarding long term sub position

    Hello!

    I've been blessed to have my own classroom but do to budget issues (typical in this economy) my position was cut so I decided to start subbing. A month ago, I started a long-term sub position that will continue until the end of the school year. The teacher left in a haste do to a serious illness; so now I'll be writing lesson plans. I'm wondering how should I phrase this on my resume as most long-term subs do not write lessons etc. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

    P.S please forgive any typos my laptop is hanging on by a thread....:dizzy:

    On you resume:

    Classroom teacher, grade #, ABC School, any town, state
    Verbiage here about your classroom responsibilities, any highlights...

    LTS,XYZ School, any town, state, grade #
    Bullet your responsibilities including something to the effect of:
    Created differentiated lesson plans to meet district content standards

    Most LTS that I know are writing lesson plans and basically assuming all duties of a teacher.

    The same thing is generally true here in my district as well. I'd still absolutely recommend including all that information on a resume.

    When the administration reads your resume and sees the dates you were employed as a LTS it will be assumed that you wrote your own plans.

    I would write it the same way that you would if you were the classroom teacher. Best of luck in the job search.

    As mopar said, at least where I am, long-term subs do write plans and that is assumed on a resume. Had the teacher been able to plan his/her leave, there may have been plans written the first week, but beyond that the sub writes the plans.:)

    I agree that most LTS do write their own plans, but I would still include your responsibilities on your resume to be clear.

    Thanks for everyone's response! It sounds like the majority of school districts LTS write their own lesson plans. I wasn't aware of that.:blush: Thanks again and Happy New Year!

    On my resume, I just explained what I did in the teacher's absence and my employer thought it was great!
