I am currently in a long term sub position for the end of the year. The teacher I am subbing for has been in and out of school for most of the year due to illness. Subbing is going fine. after 3 weeks I am finally getting control of the classes and they understand I am not leaving like all the other subs. Heres where I need the advice. This morning I get to school and find out the teacher I am subbing for died this morning. Then later we found out she is in the ICU and not expected to make it. She is on life support till her son makes it in from Afganistan. Now the kids dont know anything but I feel like the teachers are all looking at me like I did this to her. They have stopped talking to me. I have never met the teacher and have never talked bad about her. Does anyone have any advice for me how to handle this?
