This will be my third year subbing and eating in the teacher's lounge has not been my favorite thing to do. I understand that it's a good time to get to know teachers and network but I find that I rarely have the opportunity to do so. With that being said, this year I decided that I would try to eat in the teacher's lounge everyday so I could get to know the teachers. However, the days that I have eaten there so far, the teachers completely ignore me! I try to talk but they down right snub me. I understand that this is their free time but I don't see why they should be so rude! I have also noticed that there are quite a few grade level teachers that never eat in the lounge but instead eat in one of the teacher's rooms. The problem is that they don't tell the subs or invite them. I don't exactly feel like going up and asking them where they are all eating without being invited so I end up eating alone in the lounge. They walk in and use the microwave and refrigerator but never mention that they are eating in a different place. Do other subs have the same problem or are these teachers just being really rude!
