I am so grateful this forum exists. I work for five different school districts as well as a substitute staffing service for charter schools. My overall list of schools I sub for includes well over 200 schools. This means I have been employed every single day since school started the day after Labor Day. But it also means that I sub in a different school nearly every single day. Does anyone ever feel any of the following: "I have no relationship with staff and administration. Sometimes I'm so temporary I can barely muster the wherewithal to tell students my name." "I am constantly memorizing a new set of rules for every school every day and am starting to get so confused that I'm unable to really enforce anything." "I never know if I'm doing my job well because I never get feedback, so I just keep doing the best I can, even if it's awful." "I want to dye my hair blue just so people remember me." I feel so incredibly transitory. I enter a new school building with new students, new staff, new schedule, new rules every single day. No one remembers me. I get zero feedback on my job performance unless it's atrocious (whoops, sorry there was "tension" between me and the students who I asked to put away their cell phones - yes, this was real feedback left on my Aesop site). Urgh, someone commiserate with me. I feel like a ghost.
