I requested to use two personal days several weeks ago, had them approved, and had a sub. I wouldn't even take them but in my district, if you don't use them, you lose them and get nothing. So I decided that I would work on homework for my Master's degree and just relax. I checked my email around 10:00 this morning to see if my Master's teacher had graded a paper that I recently submitted and found an email that said all of my classes were canceled for the whole day. I immediately called my principal who wouldn't answer and then called the secretary. She said that another teacher got sick so they took my sub to cover for her. I decided to just come back to school for the afternoon so that at least those kids wouldn't miss my class. I'm not sure that was the best thing to do especially when I discovered that one of the mentor teachers had a sub while she worked on someone's evaluation. I just can't believe that they would cancel my classes while a teacher sits and works on her computer. I realize that if she observed someone she couldn't reschedule that but she could maybe have done the paperwork later when the sub situation was better! I also can't believe that they canceled my classes at 8:08 this morning. Couldn't they keep calling to try and find a sub? I'm not sure that I handled this whole thing right. What would you do?
