I have been subbing frequently in special ed classes over the last 16 years, in addition to regular ed. I enjoy it, and have been on the requested sub list by some teachers as a preferred sub. I was even asked this year, by the special ed coordinator, to take over a class at the beginning of this year until a permanent replacement could be found, but I got the message too late. Last month, however, I worked for a teacher with an aide who had an obvious dislike for me. She was cold and distant throughout the day, and even snapped at me during a difficult moment. Today I was called in to meet with the district superintendent because I was written up by the principal for not following proper procedure in this class, and for a poor evaluation in a regular ed class at this same school two months ago. This is baffling because I do not dramatically change things from class to class. How is it that I am the number one sub at one school, and get written up for not following procedure at another? I would like to know exactly what procedure I did not follow, but I am not sure who to contact. Should I ask the superintendent who I should get details from? Should I call the special ed coordinator, who thought enough of me to request me to start a class? I was told by the superintendent that after one more " strike"( I have two), that I could be released. Such is one of the plagues of subbing. You do not get rewarded for the good, but you get punished for the bad.
