So, just curious My school has a bad habit of not securing subs. Some of it is lack of subs, other is "oversight." Just today, the math teacher across the hall isn't here, hasn't been here all day. No sub. I absorbed her kids during one of my blocks--there are kids roaming every where. That same teacher was out for maternity leave from September through November, and they didn't have a sub all quarter. I've come back from a field trip and had no sub in my room. I've been out writing curriculum for the district and my kids have emailed me to let me know they don't have sub, but they're all there doing work. I do my best to help out my colleagues as do those around me, and emergencies do come up, but this is a safety concern. I do call the office and inform them, but what else can I do? But then I got called to the carpet today because I went looking for a coverage for my last block today on my own, instead of going through our secretary downstairs. Guess what, I have a sub.
