I'm curious as to what qualifications people need to have in your district to be a sub. Coming from Washington, you MUST be a credentialed teacher to sub and you MUST take a 2 day long child abuse course. When I moved to AZ, I was simply shocked to find out all you need is a high school diploma and some college credits. These college credits could be in underwater basket weaving and it wouldn't matter! This has always scared me with who I am leaving in my class. As teachers, we are told to stay in the library when our students are there with the librarian because she is a para but yet subs that have no education background can be left with my students? I have had SEVERAL horrible subs in my classroom over the years. I ended up getting 2 of them banned from our school based on what happened in the classroom. So, what are your districts qualifications?
